Quite frankly, I don't know who I am or where I am this week! I might be a young Englishman who joined the Indian mounted police to see the jungle, have an adventure, and bring civilization to the far corners of the world. Or maybe I'm a bounty hunter in Boston who has long lost his real name and is now called Molasses. Or I might be one of several men who are leaders in Boston's publishing industry. I do know it's 1870 and everyone seems to be looking for someone or something. [I've only just started this novel!]

"It was when I read Walden that I knew I wanted to be a publisher," said Osgood. . . . "Not that I wished to experiment as a hermit in the woods, mind! But I realized that behind the unusual insights of this strange spirit, Thoreau, there was yet another person, far from Thoreau's woods, who was going to great lengths to ensure that every person in America had a chance to read his writing if they so desired. Someone who did so not because it would instantly prove popular, but because it could be important." (15)
