2. "Midnight Rising," by Tony Horwitz

Forgotten hero – or crazed fanatic? In Midnight Rising: John Brown and the Raid that Sparked the Civil War (Henry Holt, 365 pp.), journalist Tony Horwitz reexamines the story of John Brown and his raid on Harpers Ferry. Monitor books editor Marjorie Kehe writes that Horwitz’s “compelling account holds this flawed hero up high, offering him to us in all his odd fanaticism – and his soul-stirring rigor.” (CSMonitor.com, 10/28/11)
