Angus, Duncan's younger brother, comes of age, physically and spiritually, as Scottish Covenanters face Highlanders at Drumclog. Covenanters wrestle with Christ's command to love their enemies. "Doug Bond's novels do more than entertain. They educate. Bond weaves the voices of Samuel Rutherford and John Knox into the historical tapestry of war, civil disobedience, rebellion, justice, father's love and family devotion. The books are for boys, but this boy of 60 found himself rooting for Duncan and Angus in the heather of the highlands. Good stuff to help young teens understand current foreign affairs."
