"Crowel paints a world so vivid and compelling that you feel like you belong there, and read with horror and joy as the lives of these unforgettable characters play out to their fateful ends."

"Cry Uncle, Sumbody"
"Cry Uncle, Sumbody is a skillful blend of history and fiction, taking readers on a journey through one of the most turbulent periods in American history. A caring tribute to David Longenecker, on whose diary the story is based, Cry Uncle reveals the thoughts and emotions of a common soldier in battle, prison, and the homestead. The addition of Longenecker's diary at the end of the book is an added bonus.
