The historical novel usually concerns itself with persons who have made a major imprint on their times and on the minds of posterity. They are written about generals and statesmen and kings and queens. But for every general there were ten thousand soldiers, and for every king or queen there were multitudes of subjects. An historical novel may as justly deal with the lives of people who were important not individually but in the mass. This novel tells the story of the founding of a small Maine town, by ordinary people, in what then was an ordinary way. It was the way in which towns were founded from the Atlantic seaboard west to the great plains, by stripping off the forest and putting the land to work. These people were not as important as the founders of the country, nor was the town they founded as important as New York. But people like them made this country, and towns like Union, Maine, were and are the soil in which this country's roots are grounded. 866 Pgs Paperback
