Across the sea lies a newly discovered continent, a world whose forests and beasts are unknown to the recorded memory of elves, dwarves, or men. In this land called Mira, the brutal sacking of a young colony links the fates of two opposite characters: a twelve-year-old printer’s son named Simon Jones and his long-lost uncle Tiberius Bogg, one of Mira’s legendary mountain men. Together, they turn the tables on their attackers and pursue them through a wilderness full of extraordinary creatures, all culled from American tall tales, Indian legends, and backwoods folklore.
