Product Description

MACKINLAY KANTOR
Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Andersonville

Arouse
and
Beware

A Novel of Escape During the Civil War

BASIS FOR THE FILM
THE MAN FROM DAKOTA

This is the story of three strange companions who attain what seldom has been won by any escaping prisoners.

Two Yankee soldiers escape from Belle Island, the Confederate Prison, in 1864. As they make their way northward to the Union lines on the Rapidan they are joined by a woman who is fleeing from Richmond. The hazards of their painful flight are tremendous as they travel by night on roads as ominous as the incredible future awaiting them.

Starvation and feasting, the swift beat of love, the primitive encounter, the hot cry of triumph—these elements are combined in this bold and valiant tale of sacrifice and high devotion.

Arouse and Beware, first published in 1936, was widely praised by the critics and became a best seller. Now with the success of MacKinlay Kantor's great novel, Andersonville, and the enormous interest in the Civil War period, it is being re-issued again to be enjoyed by a whole new generation of readers.

 

 Praise from the Critics

 "Swiftly readable, vivid in detail and in its quality of imagination, it marks him again

as one of the novelists who can recreate the American past and legends of
that past and make them come alive."—Stephen Vincent Benet

"When you have read his book you feel that you know what it was like
to sneak through the fields of Virginia, in foggy March nights, with every sound
an enemy, when Lee and Grant were mak­ing history."—Lewis Gannett

 "This is a saga—a heroic narrative. It puts flesh and blood into tradition."
 —Henry Seidel Canby, Book-of-the-Month Club News

 "For all its subtle characterization, this is a fast-moving novel
 into whose tor­rent the reader is swept irresistibly."—Boston Transcript

"As an objective narrative, as an adven­ture story, Arouse and Beware is ex­cellent."—N. Y. Times

 "A book of stark drama, distinction of style, imaginative power . . . Mr. Kantor
has written a book taut with two primi­tive passions—the desire to live, and the desire to love.
It is one of the most powerful recent works in imaginative romance."—Springfield Republican
