This book is based on a true story in Western Kentucky where I live. It made the history of the Civil War come alive. Highly recommended.
Would recommend younger readers read with a parent to allow for discussion about war.

I'm glad I checked this book out from the library instead of wasitng money buying it. I try to read all the Civil War era fiction I can. This one was disappointing. Based on a true story, and full of relevant historical photographs, this book fails to deliver on action in many ways. I do not think it will hold the interest of the 9-12 year old target audience.

Captured! Tells the story of a 14 year old farm boy boy named Johnny Ables. His father has died and he has to act as the man of the family. While doing chores he was captured by Confederate soldiers and pressed into service as a wood hauler. Ironically, those Confederate soldiers are themselves taken prisoner and Johnny is mistaken as a young Confederate soldier and is sent to prison camp in Indianapolis.

Mary Blair Immel writes that she wanted to stay true to the actual story of Johnny Ables' life. This even means not including an ending to the story because she could not find it in her research. This leaves it to the reader's imagination if the boy gets home.

This read, while historically accurate, was dry and boring.
