About the Series: Tales of the New World
Across the sea lies a newly discovered continent, a world whose forests and beasts are unknown to the recorded memory of elves, dwarves, or men... a wilderness full of extraordinary creatures – jackelopes and thunderbirds, fur-bearing trout and four-legged hills – all culled from American tall tales, Indian legends, and backwoods folklore.

Review by: DAK on Aug. 8, 2018 :
This was an excellent book. The combination of mountain man adventure tale, young boy coming of age and fantasy, all well thought out and unique to the genre, make for a very fun read. I highly recommend it and will be reading other efforts by this author. My only quibble, and the reason for 4 instead of 5 stars, is the slightly jarring mix of technological levels apparent between the use of firelocks, mail and plate armor. While all existed at the same time, it seems the settlers are in the early 18th Century while the privateers are in the 15th at best. but this can be ignored or handwaved away, something I was happy to do. Overall, great story and I'm looking forward to more.
