Abstract

**Warning: Some of the language or characterizations in this book are the product of the time when this book was written, and are no longer considered acceptable.**

This novel follows Will Gordon, a teenager who thinks of himself as a natural-born leader. Alongside his good friend, Rectus, who is two years younger, the two boys travel south by boat and find themselves in the city of St. Augustine, and are quickly overcome with a desire to see all there is. One night, they decide to sneak into Fort Marion. They are caught, but meet two Cheyenne Indians  who assist in their escape. They also meet descendants of the Minorcans brought over by Dr. Andrew Turnbull, and go sailing with a Minorcan family. They soon tire of St. Augustine and decide to travel further south meeting many friendly folk along the way, discovering exciting new places, and continuing the adventure neither would forget.

Other notable local locations visited include the St. Augustine Inlet and Matanzas Bay, Anastasia Island, the bayfront, the St. Augustine Lighthouse, and a bathhouse.
