Arundel Author:Kenneth Roberts This is the first book of the classic series from Pulitzer Prize-winning historical novelist Kenneth Roberts, all featuring characters from the town of Arundel, Maine. Arundel follows Steven Nason as he joins Benedict Arnold in his march to Quebec during the American Revolution.
It's back to the Revolution for this look at Arnold's March on Quebec guided by faithful sons of the town of Arundel, Maine. Lots of name-dropping; much rhetoric concerning the good and faithful "Indians" of Southern Maine. The assault itself occupies a few brief chapters at the end. The concentration is on the arduousness of the trek across the wilderness of Maine itselfin graphic detail. of course, there are the inevitable love interests throughout, but these merely provide a distraction and the subplots to retain interest.
