Summary
Follows the experiences of Ash Thompson, who becomes a folk hero after she abandons her farmer husband and disguises herself as a man to go fight for the South during the Civil War
Summary
"I was to go and he was to stay," says Constance Thompson, recounting her decision to disguise herself as a man, leave her husband behind to tend their Indiana farm, and enlist in the Union Army as "Ash Thompson." Though Ash may be physically stronger than her spouse and more suited to military life, she finds the battlefield carnage tough to stomach. And that's before she's wounded in combat, captured by bounty hunters, imprisoned, and worse. Spare and compelling, Neverhome offers a different perspective on the American Civil War. -- Description by Gillian Speace
