Winner Description: 
by James Lincoln Collier & Christopher Collier, and published by Four Winds
Winner Blurb: 

The Meekers are typical of many uncommitted or nonpartisan families who were affected in a very personal way by the American Revolutionary War.  The agony of their involvement is revealed through the eyes of Tim, who sees his brother, Sam, join the continentals and watches helplessly as events move toward the tragic and ironic climax.  The book is remarkable for its mature and unromantic view of history and for its forceful portrayal of the effects of war on people caught between two unrelenting political forces.
