KIRKUS REVIEW

A thinly spun out story of ew Amsterdam at the time Peter Stuyvesant came to govern the Dutch colonists. The changes he made to bring order out of chaos, to clean up the little city and make it a safer place to live, and particularly the new rules about fire protection and prevention, the invention of the leather buckets, and the start of the ocket brigade.
