"Arundel is one of the most thrilling of all novels of America's past.
In its pages are relived in all their fulll-blooded excitement the stirring days of the Revolution's earliest phases when Benedict Arnold drove his army of untrained colonials northward through the Maine wilderness toward the walls of Quebec. From the camping grounds of Cambridge, northward through the town of Arundel in Maine, along the Kennebec and across trackless swamps and forests his army pressed, in one of the most difficult and dangerous campaigns of history.
This is the story of that epic march, and of Steven Nason of Arundel, Arnold's right hand man; of Cap Huff, the rollicking down-East Hercules; lovely cold-hearted Marie de Sabrevois; the French leader, Marquis Henri de Sabrevois; Phoebe Marvin, with her seaman's clothes and her chain of cat's eyes; of many other unforgettable characters. With the story of the march itself is interwoven the deeply moving romance of a young scout and a strong and determined daughter of the frontier."
