The Rockeaters is an epic narrative of Jeremiah McCurdy's hunt for and finding of the fabled Rockeaters, written between 1620 and 1752. Jeremiah was a Scottish Highlander who immigrated to colonial America in 1633 and was immediately enthralled by the fascinating people and places he encountered while exploring the New World. His ties with Native Americans, formerly enslaved people, and Highlander neighbors created history. Throughout his adventure, he encounters heroes, lifelong friendships, long-lasting romances, and colorful individuals.
There is action, comedy, love, betrayal, and forgiveness. There are conflicts on land and at sea, as well as exploration of high mountains and deep tunnels. Finally, there are the Rockeaters, a kindly race of ancient humans who have survived since antiquity. Jeremiah is accidentally selected for a tremendous journey with magnificent gifts, a long life, and deadly perils. It's a magnificent trip that would have been lost and forgotten long ago if not for his notebooks.
