(price-clipped) [solid copy, a trace of soiling to top and bottom edges of covers, light foxing to fore-edge; jacket moderately worn at extremities, rear panel somewhat dirty, minor discoloration at inside edges of flaps]. "Only a man who knows the Massachusetts and New York countryside intimately could write so absorbing and exciting a book as [this one]. The story moves against a glowing and detailed background which completely transports the reader to the time and surroundings in which it takes place. It tells how a very real boy, Tod Randall, and his important black and white sheepdog, Limb, solve a border dispute over iron ore from Massachusetts for a furnace in York Province in the 1740s.
