KIRKUS REVIEW

Compactly told, the story of the British occupation of Mackimac Island during the war of 1812. With the help of his son John, Michael Culver as captain of the militia, outmaneuvers English forces while seeming to work with them and thus helps the Americans on their campaigns further south and at Detroit. There's the familiar string of spyings and, raids and Harrison's victory at Tippecazoe, before Mackinac sees its own flag again.
