Item description

THE COW NECK REBELS by James Forman, copyright 1969. A Bell Book published by Farrar, Straus Giroux, New York (1969). Pictorial Hardcover with dustjacket. A Junior Literary Guild selection; Book Club Edition. End papers are illustrated with a map of Long Island Sound. 5 3/4" x 8 3/8" tall, with 272 pages. Minor to moderate shelf wear. Illustrated boards. Contents clean and tight - "50" penciled on front end paper. Dust jacket is rubbed and chipped with a few tears of less than one and a quarter inch as well as some soiling. From the jacket flaps: As Bruce and Malcolm Cameron march offf to the Battle of Long Island on an August day in 1776, they know the games are over; now it is war. And neither boy knows when or if he will return. Malcolm, older than Bruce by two years, has always been the stronger, the more courageous of the two. Now he is impatient for the fighting to begin. Bruce, who envies his brother's forcefulness, worries about death and whether he'll be brave enough to fight. And he misses those he left behind---his mother, Sarah, whose serenity pervaded their home; Rev, his big, loving dog; Rachel, loved by both brothers. As the rumors of war grew and spread, the community of Cow Neck on the north shore of Long Island---and even the Cameron family itself---had been torn by conflict. Rachel's father makes no effort to hide his loyalty to the King, while Grandfather Cameron damns everything British. Even the boys' father, in the past non-political, has been forced to take a stand. It is almost a relief for Malcolm and Bruce to march off with the local militia, the Cow Neck rebels---to stop talking and take action. The Battle of Long Island provides the action---not crucial, perhaps, to the outcome of the Revolution, but tragically decisive as to the future of Malcolm and Bruce Cameron.
