Publisher Summary
Thirteen-year-old Gabriel, a former slave, leaves behind his life as a professional jockey and joins his father in the Fifth U.S. Colored Cavalry at Camp Nelson, Kentucky.

No longer a slave, Gabriel leaves behind a successful horse racing career to join his parents at Camp Nelson, where his father is a sergeant in the Fifth U.S. Colored Calvary of the Union Army. But being a soldier is a lot harder than he imagined. Bad weather, rough riding, dwindling supplies, and blatant racism wear heavily on his spirit. This gripping tale vividly brings to life the danger and drama of a time when war and issues of race and freedom divided the country.
