FIRE ALONG THE SKY
Being the Adventures of Captain Shane Hardacre in the New World

 
“Splendidly researched and wildly amusing historical adventure … Tom Jones as The Deerslayer.” — Kirkus Reviews

 
FIRE ALONG THE SKY is a wildly entertaining historical adventure that takes the reader into the extraordinary world created by William Johnson in the Mohawk Valley in the aftermath of the French and Indian War, in the time when America was forged. We meet extraordinary historical figures: the warrior chief Pontiac and the Delaware Prophet who inspired his revolt; Angelique, the “Pompadour of Detroit”; Molly Brant and her brother Joseph; and Patience Wright, the “wax sybil,” an American spy in London who rivaled Madame Tussaud. The action races from the notorious Hell-Fire Club in England to the murder of Pontiac near St. Louis, from Mesmer’s performance for Ben Franklin in a Paris salon to bigamy and intrigue in New Orleans when an Irish captain-general held the city in the name of the Spanish king.
