Description

Plots, shots, flight, pursuit — all are part of this story from the exciting chapter in America’s history when thousands of Loyalists fled to Canada to evade the vengeance of the American Revolutionaries. Twelve-year-old Ned Seaman tells this lively tale of his family’s perilous journey. Escape may be fiction, but Martha and Caleb Seaman and their children actually existed.
