    One thought on “Jayhawker”

    1. I just finished reading this book in class and I’m in the seventh grade. I enjoyed it quite a bit! It wasn’t near as boring as a lot of the books that we usually read in school. I also live in Kansas, so I could relate to places in the book like Fort Leavenworth and Lawrence. I also have been to Jefferson City, so I could relate to that. In all, I really enjoyed the climax of the novel! I also really liked the portrayal of Hickok and Mary Dent. Lije was a pretty good main character and I lik [...]

    2. I really liked this book. It told the story of a kid who followed in his father's footsteps and helped in the fight to end slavery. The book is dramatic and exciting. I loved all the plot twists and the amazing ending. I would recommend this book to anyone hoping to learn more about the cicil war and what the life was like for a Jayhawker.

    3. Good book i loved the ending where he got banner back and everything. Wasn't a very suspenseful book but for some reason was still interesting

    4. My first impression of this book was that it was very serious and not so interesting because it contained lots of historical facts and figures that many children I know would not like to read by choice. In this book, Elijah Tulley (Lije) is growing up during the Civil War but before the war even happens, he joins his father in tending the family farm in Kansas. His father, Absalom, is a Jayhawker and joins men in running to Missouri to free slaves. Finally when Lije is old enough to join his fat [...]

    5. Personal reaction I enjoyed the suspense within this novel. I love how a twelve year old can be so brave, and risk his life for the better of the country. It is fascinating, and I wish I read this when I was younger so I knew what a Jayhawker was and how dedicated to freeing the slaves they were. read aloud to make a curricular connection This book would be great for a social studies unit on the Civil War. Many students not from Kansas have never heard of Jayhawkers or Bushwackers, so it would b [...]

    6. Personal Reaction: I really enjoyed reading this book. I am in a history class right now at KU for the history of Kansas and it was very similar to what we learned in class. This book put the information we learned into a story which made it much more fun and interesting. I even think I may have understood Jayhawkers more from this book than I did in class!Read Aloud: This would be great for a social studies/history lesson. Like I said earlier, I even learned a lot more from this book than I did [...]

When his father is killed in a raid into Missouri, he is taken by abolitionists into Missouri to join Quantrill's raiders as a spy.

    10. Hi Nancy here are two answers for questions 9 and 13.I read 202 pages. Q 9: the first quistion for Lije's father, he said proudly "Mr. Brown, that's exactly what we are,soldiers. That's what Lije'll be" The question is "if Lije twelve years only why you encourage him to be a solder? Are you pessimist for the war with Missourian?My question for the author how can a young boy in the age of thirteen to become a warrior, and he could not fight in this age, do you think best if he is at least eightee [...]

    12. Patricia Beatty does a fabulous job writing about Kansas' violent history. She gives life to "bleeding Kansas". The main character, Lije Tulley, endures death, fear, and living under an alias. He works to free slaves from Missouri and aid the Union Army. Beatty, uses realistic situations and historically accurate events to help bring life to this great Kansas book. Other significant characters are Frank and Jesse James, Charley Quantrill, and Jim Hickock. Most of the story takes place near Lawre [...]

    13. It was a good book overall, but the beginning was very slow and kind of boring really. I enjoyed the parts where it got into where he was a spy. The war parts were the best because it was my thrilling. There was a little bit of a love aspect when the main character gave a girl he just met his old horse, and fell in love with her right then. The end was a little sad because his hometown got raided by the southerners and he was somewhat a part of it. Overall a good book, with a little comedy becau [...]

    15. Rushed. That is what I thought of this book. It felt like the author wanted to get through background to get the character to a point in the book. It could have utilized flashback more effectively. Our 7th graders read this; I wanted to read it to have some common ground with the 8th graders I will now teach. This just wasn't great.

    16. I really enjoyed this book since it is about the area where I live. I have visit many of the towns and study all of the historical characters. Even my home town is mentioned. But even if you don't live in the KS/MO area it is a interesting because it is very good example of what "Bleeding Kansas" was like.

    17. This book is really good. Lije is a very determined and courageous boy who wants to help with abolition. The book is very interesting to read.

    18. Grades 5+. At the beginning of the Civil War, Kansas farm boy becomes a jayhawker, an abolitionist raider freeing slaves from Missouri, and then goes undercover as a spy.

    19. This book was very exciting and kept making you want to read to the next page. It was a great story and taught me a lot about that time period that I didn't already know.

    20. I really liked this book. It told the story of a kid who followed in his father's footsteps and helped in the fight to end slavery. The book is dramatic and exciting. I loved all the plot twists and the amazing ending. I would recommend this book to anyone hoping to learn more about the cicil war and what the life was like for a Jayhawker.
