Nurse, Solider, Spy: Story of Sarah Edmonds—ART SNEAK PEAK!
John Hendrix posted a few final pieces for his next illustrated adventure, Marissa Moss's Nurse, Solider, Spy. The Story of Sarah Edmonds, on his blog. His last book John Brown was met with much critical acclaim. However his art for this new book might in fact be even more impressive!
"For those of you who are not aware of the story of Sarah Edmonds- she was a passionate woman who wanted to fight for the Union in the Civil War. But in order to enlist, dressed up as a man, Frank Thompson. In this book, we tell the tale of her enlistment, her exceptional abilities in the battle field and her adventures as a spy behind the Confederate lines. She went on many clandestine missions, but in this book we depict one where she dressed as a slave. "—John Hendrix
