Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0919670601, Paperback)Popular demand has lead to the reprint of this historical novel. Plots, shots, flight, pursuit - all are part of the adventure of this story from the exciting chapter in America's history when thousands of Loyalists were compelled to flee to Canada to evade the vengeance of the American Revolutionaries. Twelve-year-old Ned Seaman tells this lively tale of his family's perilous journey. Escape is fiction, but Martha and Caleb Seaman and their children did exist and they did escape to Canada after the American Revolution. Mary Beacock Fryer is a descendant of those Seamans. Born in Brockville, Ontario, a community founded by Loyalist refugees, Mrs. Fryer knows the Loyalist period well and recreates it vividly. Her other publications in this field include Caleb Seaman, a Loyalist (1971), Loyalist Spy (1974), King's Men, The Soldier Founders of Ontario (1980), Rolls of the Provincial (Loyalist) Corps, Canadian Command, American Revolutionary Period (1981), and Buckskin Pimpernel, The Exploits of Justus Sherwood, Loyalist, Spy (1981). Stephen Clarke's evocative illustrations bring the people and the incidents of the novel to visual life.
