It follows the interwoven destinies of three families (one Indian family and two Dutch settler families) during this time period. It begins with Walter Van Brunt, a descendant of Dutch yeomen, whose fondness for drugs and alcohol leads to a motorcycle accident in which he loses a foot. This precipitates two journeys: Walter's, as he searches for his lost father, who years before had deserted friends, son and wife; and ours, as we are drawn back through the centuries, and the secrets of the Van Brunts, the Van Warts and the Mohonks are at last revealed. The author has published four previous works of fiction.Read Less

It's not a linear history but series of flashbacks linking a handful of families with themes that wind throughout?from the displacement of the Native Americans to the appearance of folksinging socialists, with the landed gentry usually winning the day through the use of money and force.
