    Laurie Myers is the author of several well-received books for intermediate readers, includingLewis and Clark and Me and collections of stories that she collaborated on with her mother Betsy Byars and sister, Betsy Duffey:My Dog, My Hero; Dog Diaries; and Cat Diaries. Ms. Myers lives with her family in Augusta, Georgia.

    Amy June Bates has illustrated many books for children, including The Dog Who Belonged to No One by Amy Hest andHillary Rodham Clinton: Dreams Taking Flight by Kathleen Krull. She graduated from Brigham Young University and now lives in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

    Ten-year-old Tommy and his sister Annie are intrigued by the new soldiers arriving in their Georgia town. Since the Civil War started, wounded men waiting to be treated at the local church-turned-hospital have been coming in by droves. When Tommy sees a soldier drop his notebook, he sends his dog, Samson, to fetch it. Tommy soon meets the soldier and is faced with the hardest decision he's ever had to make: whether or not he should help a Yankee escape to freedom.
    Filled with intriguing suspense and tackling difficult questions about slavery, this story, told in accessible short chapters, will appeal to history buffs as well as those who appreciate a faithful dog.
