Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. After the War of 1812, Edward Biddle returned to Philadelphia. But because of the taint of his father's disloyalty to the American cause, he was publicly snubbed by the "loyal" Biddles, and two years later, in 1819, he left Philadelphia for the heart of the vast Michigan Territory -- Mackinac Island -- where the code was WHAT, not WHO one was. Set against the exciting history of the roaring Michigan Territory and the turbulent struggle of America's great fur trading empires, this is a story of wealth and power, of murder and violence...and of a love that changes the direction and lives of countless people. 026313
