An oldfashioned adventure story. Ned Gudgeon is asked to find the bastard child his brother Daniel fathered in America during the Seven Years War. Following the few clues he has, he travels first to a Carolina plantation, where he helps two slaves to escape; to Mount Vernon, to see Daniel's former brother-officer, George Washington; and then across the Appalachians, into the wild 'back country' of the frontier - where he has a series of perilous adventures with settlers and bandits, visionaries and murderers, landspeculators and American Indians, before finally reaching his journey's end.

Brought this book from the meeting in Lef last week. It looks promising.

This book has been gathering dust here for the past 1.5 years, and every time I was to pick a new book to read, I skipped this one. So now this book travels with a friend to New Zealand, where it will be released.

.. and back it came, after having traveled all the way to New Zealand. Inside is a boarding card to show for it. I picked it up from Papavers bookcase after dinner yesterday. Bookcrosser can be trusted to hand out beautiful stories, I have never been disappointed.

Halfway the book I had the sense I was plodding through, desperate to finish it, hoping for a somewhat satisfying ending. Alas.
