Read in January, 1993

** spoiler alert ** Read this YEARS ago and cried and loved it. My historical fiction streak was a mile wide, even at 8 years old. I remember being shocked that Sam actually died, even though he wasn't guilty -- and killed by his own side, as an example! Not many children's books stray from unrealistic idealism into the realm of "Life isn't always fair."
