From the end of the 18th century, Americans traveled west to find new homes and new lands. They brought with them the magics of plain people. It is from these roots of the American dream that award-winning writer Orson Scott Card has crafted what the Charlotte Observer called "a uniquely American fantasy." Using the lore and the folk magic of the men and women who settled a continent, and the beliefs of the tribes who were here before them, Card has created an alternate frontier America.

While enthralled and inspired by the first 5 books in The Alvin Maker series, Now The main characters have become a bit too petulant and sarcastic for my taste. I found their attitude vaguely annoying.
