It is the 1830's. The generation that risked everything to give America her independence is fast passing away. But what they leave behind is a nation whose freedom is a beacon for the waves of immigrants that will come in search of a better life in a new land. Out of their blood and sweat of their labors will come a nation that will seal it's place in history with engineering heights not seen since the glory of ancient Rome. Among these waves of immigrants are Agnes Gale and her twelve year old son,Thomas. They are the last survivors of an Irish fishing family. Having already lost a husband and oldest son to the sea, an ailing Agnes Gale is determined that her last surviving child will not share that same fate. The sea that is not yet through with the Gale family will put young Thomas amid a cast of characters, machines and events the likes of which he never could have imagined.
