Dawn Drums scored first place in the Arizona Author's Literary Contest and won the Tony Hillerman Best Fiction Award for 2014. In addition, the title has racked up two Finalist Awards. The book is geared for young adult readers and up. The Civil War will take on an entirely new relevance and meaning for students whose teachers are looking for a way to bring that heinous, brutal war to the forefront.
Walton, a teacher for 36 years, introduced Civil War re-enactment activities to his students. Although now retired, he still participates in many Civil War events and is frequently a guest speaker at schools and universities. The author even provides educational activities the classroom teacher can use.
|The author is a climber, too!|
This is a phenomenal book. I learned more about the Civil War from this book than I ever learned in 17 years of schooling.
