Abstract

Set during the 2nd Seminole War (1835-1842) at Ft. Brooke (present-day Tampa), Sergeant Munro is accused of stealing money and discharged from the Army. With his son, Billy, and a Seminole friend, the Sergeant tracks down the villain who framed him. The three travel throughout south, central, and northeast Florida meeting historical figures in both the Seminole tribe and the US Army. The author's descriptions of the flora, fauna, and geography indicate some knowledge of old Florida (except Cowford as the original name of Jacksonville).

Local locations visited or mentioned in the text include the Governor's House (Governor's House Cultural Center and Museum).
