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.
I enjoy well-written historical fiction, and found this book deepened my understanding of Arnold as a person. Those branded with the label "traitor" are seldom remembered for anything else. Highly recommended.
