Time travel, rides on monster turtles, battles with slavers, and a sea fight with the British Navy drive this modern Huck Finn forward. On the surface, it is a young teen's comic journey of self-discovery. Beneath this tale is a first-rate account of the historic, cultural, and environmental roots of Americana.
Time Pool: The Amazing Adventures of Eddie Dowd is a stunning book. It’s fantastical, historical settings are spiced with comedy and action as Eddie Dowd is thrown onto the trail of his heritage. A contemporary Huck Finn, Eddie has no idea why he has been chosen to save Salt Island. He’d rather play practical jokes on his friends and explore the creeks and marshes around his home.
But the mysterious Maman Lu, who some natives say is a witch, sends him back in time to experience the life of his Indian ancestors.
Eddie is dropped into the mind of Tato, a young boy, as the tribe fights the slavers from Hispaniola. Later he falls into the consciousness of Delphie, an Indian princess. Together, they are drawn into a dangerous fight between American and British forces in the first sea battle of the American Revolution.
Eddie’s wild, crazy adventures uncover much about his island home, but will it be enough to satisfy Maman Lu?
