Great story...terrible proofing
Did anyone even bother to run spell check on this book?
Another great addition to the series
This book spends much of its time developing Peggy's character in-depth and introduces an intriguing new character, young Arthur Stewart, the child of a runaway slave who becomes like a little brother to Alvin. Just as previous books address tension and healing between red and white man, this book brings in the African American experience during the founding of america.
