Into this yarn of youthful adventure, Nancy Faulkner has woven the harsh and historically authentic facts of life for the luckless second son of a Virginia landowner before the Revolution. At a time when law, social attitudes, and family tradition all favored the first-born, younger sons had to make their own way. They might choose professions, some form of business, or very often the promise of westward migration.
