At St. Clair Publications we preserve the great literature which defined the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Such a book is our latest release, The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane.
It tells the all-to-common tale of the inward conflict of a Union private torn over the issues of the divided American nation and ridden with guilt from his decision to flee his unit. He is ashamed of his cowardice and seeks peace, wishing for a wound, a ‘red badge of courage,’ which would show that he had at least faced his duty as a soldier.
Stephen Crane is now seen as one of the most prolific authors of his generation. Own your copy of this immortal classic today by ordering our version with a forward by me from Amazon for only $9.95.
