Si Morley is bored with his job as a commercial illustrator and his social life doesn't seem to be going anywhere. So, when he is approached by an affable ex-football star and told that he is just what the government is looking for to take part in a top-secret programme, he doesn't hesitate for too long. And so one day Si steps out of his twentieth-century, New York apartment and finds himself back in January 1882.

But has he really been back in time? The portfolio of tintype photographs and sketches that he brings back convince the government. But all Si wants is to return ...
Fine. Only slightly differentiated from a new book. Undamaged cover and spine. Pages may display light wear but no marks. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.
Very good. Issued with alternate cover art. Previous owner's name written on the inside of the front cover. The pages of the text are clean and unmarked. Attractive book with some signs of use. All items guaranteed, and a portion of each sale supports social programs in Los Angeles. Ships from CA.
Really enjoyed this book.
When I received it saw in front that this exact book (copy) was given as a Christmas gift to someone by a friend of mine - and years later I ended up with it!

Loved the time period and how the author brought it to life. The mystery at the center of it was compelling.
The method of time travel reminded me a bit of the movie, "Somewhere in Time," with Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymour.

Well written account of time travel. I have read many TT books and this is one of the best. I can't wait to read the sequel!
