Gabriel’s Journey: Racing to Freedom Trilogy, Book Three

By: Alison Hart

After Gabriel wins at the Saratoga horse races, his dreams of becoming a famous jockey seem closer than ever. The Civil War rages on, though, and Gabriel feels compelled to join his parents in the Union army. "Ma and Pa say I'm too young to be a soldier. . . . But that don't mean I can't fight for freedom my own way." Gabriel puts aside his racing aspirations to join his father's cavalry unit. Courageous though he may be, is Gabriel ready to face the dangers of war?
