FIFTH YEARS AFTER
THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION,
MAGIC IS LOOSE IN THE BACKWOODS
The forces of evil are poised to prey on the folk of the hamlets and hollows: witches, demons, and red-handed men-but first they'll have to overcome Old Nathan the Wizard.
He doesn't claim much for his magical powers, but they're real enough for what they are-and besides, he hasn't forgotten how to use his long flintlock rifle ....
Enter the gritty, realistic world of Old Nathan, a backwoodsman who talks to animals and says he'll face The Devil himself-and who in the end will have to face The Devil in very fact.

A good read - a series of short stories loosely connected, but fun fantasy! Good for a rainy day or vacation day!
David Drake has always been an excellent author, but this time he outdid himself. The book was totally enjoyable, well written, and had just enough action to make it perfect. In addition to all that, the twist at the end was such a surprise! I can usually predict the plot line events, but Mr. Drake, you are GOOD!
