"Howard Breslin's new historical novel is set in the beautiful valley of the Hudson River during the tense summer months of 1788 that ended in New York's ratification of the Consitution, which made America a nation. Mr. Breslin paints many attractive pictures of the fishing community on the shores of the Hudson; the breaking up of the ice in the spring, the sudden thunder storms sweeping down the valley, the yearly return to the river of myriads of fish are all vividly described." - from dust-jacket blurb.
