Abstract:

"Tim and his monkey, Pistol, have come a long way from the streets of eighteenth-century London where they used to scrape a dishonest living. Transported to Virginia, they are now working on the plantation of Mr Gerrard, a man so kind and understanding that it seems a crying shame not to take advantage of him. Tim and Pistol have never had it so good, but Lucifer Wilkins, the huge Negro slave, broods over his long planned escape. The little monkey will not be parted from the slave, and Tim is faced with appalling choice of losing Pistol or taking the trail to the forests of Brazil and freedom."--Book jacket.
