The Eerie Canal Cover

“...a superbly researched historical/fantasy where all the background details are painstakingly accurate...will engage the attention of young readers ages 8-12.” – Midwest Book Review, Children's Bookwatch

Two ten-year-olds on a class trip to the Erie Canal find themselves transported back in time to the canal of 1829. Dragged aboard a canal boat, youngsters Tom and Sandy experience adventures getting through each day by blending in to the rhythm of daily life while also trying to find a way back to the present.

Author Jack Reber imparts an enormous amount of detail about the canal through the storyline, and his colorful characterization brings the story to life boldly. The novel's title is a play on words, and it is at once entertaining enough to hold youngsters' interests and detailed enough to be of use to parents trying to teach the history of the canal or the period.

Jack Reber is the author of The Ghost from the Schenectady Massacre, a historical time travel novel, and Saratoga Captive, also published by Royal Fireworks Press. He is a resident of New York.
