A good book. I would have to say this is Matthew J. Kirby's best book out of the three he has written.

Father and son make journey to find Welsh people. Nice to have a father and son story for change. Father is part of secret society of philosophers. It's in the 1800s when North America is being settled by English and French. Fathers prejudiced towards Indians. Son learns to make his own choices. A little bit of legend thrown in and issues with trust. A good adventure although bit lengthy. (350 pages, To me a book is long when includes extra things that don't move the story along or things to make you invest further in the characters) Has some nice science throughout and some history at the end.
