Abstract:

"In this epic sweeping family saga set in 1830s England, Romania, and Australia, Adam Stanley, a Romani horse trader and bare-knuckle boxer, must struggle to preserve his family in a land where the Industrial Revolution has brought prosperity to many but hardship to the English Gypsies. The campsites that his people have enjoyed for three centuries are gradually disappearing and new anti-vagrancy laws and a brutal draconic court system have further compounded the difficulty in leading a peaceful Gypsy life."--From back cover.
