Book Overview

Buck Summerhill is a young soldier from West Virginia. He faces the horrors of the battle of Gettysburg knowing that his two cousins, Custis and Mason, may be fighting against him in the Army of Northern Virginia. The Slopes of War is a fast-paced, panoramic story of a family divided in loyalty but equally affected by the dangers and sometimes senseless brutality of battle.

Excellent piece of work!

I first read this book in 6th grade (although I wouldn't recommend it for most 6th graders because of the graphic nature) and absolutely loved it, even though I thought it was going to be boring (I got it along with some kind of award at school in the 5th grade). To date, I have read it three times and plan on reading it again since it has been years since I have last read it. The historical nature of the book is quite accurate, even though most of the characters are fictional. Perez ties in real historical anecdotes with her characters and stories, which makes it feel that much more genuine. I was fully pleased with this book and would whole-heartedly recommend it.


I thought that this book started out boring and almost as soon as the war started, it picked up into a fast paced "horror" novel of what it would be like to live in this time period. I had to read this book for a college course and i thouht it was a great read for us and I expect that even kids will enjoy history in the form of a story!


This book is one I will probably remember for a while. I recommend this book to ya! i am into the Civil War, and this satisfied me, and at the same time moved me. One suggestion: It should be longer!


I read this book a few years ago, and it has remained one of my absolute favorites. The subject matter and the way it is presented are touching, and stay with you. The realizations the characters come to ring true of the story and the history.

The sum of Slopes of war

I felt that this book was very moving to me. I want you to read this book and further more to tell you friends about this book. It is about a young man in the Rebel army in the battle of gettysburg.
