Saint Augustine starts from the 1547 accession of Edward VI to the throne of France, then Mary on the throne of England. It extends through 1570. Illustrations include courtship scenes, Indians, and soldiers dancing madly at the sight of ships. The book was originally published in 1892. John Musick viewed the historical novel as a way of teaching the history of the country while maintaining the reader's interest with a storyline. But he also wanted to throw in all the most important happenings and personages with the same accuracy as any historian. The book is therefore an amalgam of America imagined with genuine history woven into it. When important facts don't exactly fit his story, he throws them in anyway and then gets back to the story. There is a Historical Index (find the person and event you want to know about).
