From the instant he rescues the attractive, passionate Maud Fallon from the icy waters of the Hudson one wintry day in 1849, Daniel Quinn is thrust right into a bewildering, adventure-filled trip throughout the tumult of nineteenth-century the USA. As he quests after the beguiling and elusive Maud, Daniel will witness the increase and fall of significant dynasties in upstate manhattan, epochal prize fights, unique lifestyles within the theatre, visitations from spirits past the grave, terrible battles among Irish immigrants and the "Know-Nothings," vicious ny draft riots, heroic passages in the course of the Underground Railroad, and the bloody melancholy of the Civil conflict.

Filled with Dickensian characters, a shiny experience of heritage, and a marvellously creative humor, Quinn's Bookis an enticing pride through an acclaimed glossy master.
