Listen: Frye's Selected Reading from Journey to the Wilderness with Davis Raines’ Civil War Ballad “Black and Bloody War”

"Journey to the Wilderness is kind of my anti-war Civil War book, if for no other reason than the scale of suffering and loss it chronicles -- and because of the institution that many of our ancestors, mine certainly, were fighting to defend. Whether its the Civil War or Iraq, war for a bad reason produces death for no reason, no matter how brave or heroic the soldiers. Thanks to my friend Davis Raines for helping make that point with his powerful ballad."  --Frye Gaillard
