In the early 1600s, young Edmund Steed is desperate to escape religious persecution in England.

Let me start by saying that I am a fan of James Michener. I love his books and have never been dissappointed until now. I drug myself through a coulple hundred pages waiting to be be gripped by the story, as I usually am, and finally gave up. The tedious descriptions of boat building etc. finally got the best of me. I am getting ready to read Caribbean, one of the few that I have'nt yet read. Maybe someday I'll try Chesapeake again and get into the story I must have missed.
