This novel is the sequel to The Winter of Red Snow and covers the years 1779 to 1781. As the Revolutionary War drags on, Abigail, her mother, and siblings become camp followers when their home in Valley Forge burns down. As they follow the army from Pennsylvania to Yorktown, Virginia, battles and daily camp life are seen through Abby's eyes. Although this is classified as a children's book, the story and historical details also capture an adult's attention. The Epilogue and Historical Notes provide more details and illustrations from the time period.
