“In spare, brief free-verse lines that will enable readers’ eyes to slide effortlessly down the pages, Borden relates the story of a boy who grew up skiing…(a)n accurate, high-interest narrative focused on a mature topic but written at an accessible reading level is a rare gem. Many period photographs are included…as is excellent backmatter. A fascinating and inspiring tale.” Kirkus Reviews

“(A) unique story of mountain soldiers that fans of World War II will find intriguing…(E)ducators and librarians seeking nonfiction titles with appeal to reluctant readers and history fans should add this book to their shelves.” –VOYA

“This biography is easy to read…(T)he life of Pete (and) the brief glimpse of the 10th Mountain Division is unique and interesting, as are the views of some of the men comprising the Division.” – School Library Connection
