New. No remainder marks. ; 1.2 x 8.3 x 5.8 Inches; 304 pages; Fueled by
anger at the death of his two brothers in World War I, 16-year-old Edward
abandons his ailing father on their farm and leaves Canada to enlist.
After proving that he can tame any wild horse, he's is sent to Jordan to
fight with the Cavalry.
Luckily, his horse is the extraordinary
Buke; in battle, a trooper's horse is the key to life and death, and his
true companion. In the harsh desert, Edward is grateful for the
camaraderie of his tent mates, Cheevers and Blackburn,and letters from
Emily, a nurse he met at base camp. As they close in on the enemy Edward
finds that the glory and noble vengeance he seeks is replaced by the
horror of war and the realization that he must fight not only to survive,
but also, to kill.
