Though a bit out of character for James Curwood, the light-hearted story of Thomas Jefferson Brown is delightful nonetheless. A relatively short, tongue-in-cheek tale that can be read in one sitting, the story is that of likeable, well-built man of royal lineage, a huge heart, and a bad case of wanderlust. With the ability to play seven instruments without an instrument, to wrap the hearts of children around him in an instant, and to do the work of three men, "Tom" was a likeable fellow indead. He just didn't like to stay in one place or in one job very long, and he never revealed his royal connections--that is, until he met Isobel. Something about her brought out the man and hero in him in ways that had never surfaced before, and when doom seemed his certain lot, fate stepped in to give him a helping hand. All-in-all a wonderful story of love, danger, and reckless abandon--though certainly not in that order.

About the Author:

James Oliver Curwood lived most of his life in Owosso, Michigan, where he was born on June 12, 1878. His first novel was "The Courage of Captain Plum" (1908) and he published one or two novels each year thereafter, until his death on August 13, 1927. Owosso residents honor his name to this day, and Curwood Castle (built in 1922) is the town's main tourist attraction. During the 1920s Curwood became one of America's best selling and most highly paid authors. This was the decade of his lasting classics "The Valley of Silent Men" (1920) and "The Flaming Forest" (1921). He and his wife Ethel loved the outdoors and were active conservationists.
