The book tells the story of two Northern journalists working for the pro-abolitionist New York Tribune — Junius Henri Browne and Albert Deane Richardson — who were caught by Confederate soldiers and imprisoned in seven different prison camps over 20 months before escaping from North Carolina in late 1864.
The pair traveled more than 400 miles over a month over the snow-covered Appalachians with the help of slaves and pro-Union bushwhackers before reaching Union lines a month later.
The book was published in hardcover in 2013 by PublicAffairs/Perseus, and the trade paperback is scheduled for publication this month.
