The Darkest Path

By Colin Cook


The book the Darkest Path follows a boy named Cal and his brother James. The book is about the US´s north (US Fed Army) south (Army of the Glorious Path). The book is about how the boys were captured by the path and were stationed in Arizona. One day Cal goes and befriends a stray dog and the dog ends up getting Cal to kill his Sergeant Quarles. This sends him on the run where he travels many places and is trying to get back to his home in New York.

The power in the reading

I thought when Cal killed his Sergeant was a powerful moment. I think so because he never did anything wrong at his camp. This also begins his life on the run.
