Description

Deep in the north woods of Maine, as the Revolutionary War comes to an end, Peter Loon sets off at his mother's urging to find a mysterious person. Peter, who has never been away from home, quickly falls into a series of startling entanglements. Providentially, he befriends a nomadic parson with a seafaring past whose humble intelligence and steady head prove useful, especially when the two find themselves in the middle of a bitter land battle between hardscrabble homesteaders and the "Great Proprietors," who claim the land through royal grants and contradictory Indian deeds. Van Reid's inimitable storytelling, irresistible characters, and gentle humor will captivate readers in this tale of high adventure and great humanity.
