Read full description of the books:



The neutral ground, Westchester County, just north of the British held New York City, time 1780, the American Revolution is in its 5th year, but the endless conflict continues, cavalry patrols by both sides keep the blood flowing, irregulars, the skinners for the U.S. and cow- boys, their opposite number, for England, do much burning, killing and looting, essentially common criminals, but with a pretense for the cause, doesn't matter which side. Harvey Birch, peddler, suspected spy for the King, is wanted by the Continental Army, to be hanged if captured, he has mysteriously escaped twice from custody . The ironic reality is that Mr.Birch, is a patriot, working secretly for George Washington, as an observer, giving the commander- in- chief valuable information . British Major Andre has just been executed, conspired with Benedict Arnold, tensions are high. The prosperous, loyalist family of Mr. Wharton lives in the area, a neighbor of Mr.Birch, professing neutrality, but with a son, Henry, a captain in the British army. Unwisely coming in disguise, to visit his father, sisters, Sarah and Frances and Aunt Janette. Already another traveler Mr. Harper, an impressive gentleman, escaping a furious rainstorm, is staying there, but who is he? The faithful black servant, Caesar, manages the house. When the American patrol ( the cavalry is little used by the combatants, in this war, because of the bad terrain), fighting their enemy , stops to rest, the wounded to be nursed by the lovely ladies, (the dead buried)), at the mansion, the captain is discovered. Hanging seems inevitable but Major Dunwoodie, leader of the group falls in love with Frances, how can she be connected with the major, when her beloved brother is to be executed. And what about her sister Sarah, a loyalist unlike her younger sister, how will she feel? Then more complications, the dishonorable English Colonel Wellmere, a POW, asks the trusting Sarah to marry him, not telling her, he has another wife across the wide Atlantic Ocean, in distant England !... Dr.Sitgreaves, a talkative surgeon for the Americans, has helped many soldiers to recover their health, a somewhat cantankerous but able man, who likes to dissect dead bodies for science he says, the good doctor needs undamaged corpses. Always urging the horsemen to slash carefully with their swords, not to cause too much mutilation, to the victims. The Skinners burned down Harvey's small house, with his father on his death bed , but before expiring gets up and scares the looters, from the premises, his ghastly face seems inhuman, a specter, saving the peddler ... Later moved to the headquarters of the Continental Army, Henry Wharton, the captain has a short period to live until tomorrow, convicted of espionage by a Court- Martial, his family visiting him, but a strange unbending clergyman, hated by everyone, also arrives to give final spiritual comfort. But in fact is Harvey Birch, master at disguises, also Caesar, there, can they free the doom captain? The first important American novel, 1821, that is still read today.
