The Dartmoor Yankee
by Malcolm Lynch
The story of John Adams, an American prisoner of war in 1812 who has escaped from jail into the wilds of Dartmoor. He finds shelter and love with the gipsy-like but street-wise and beautiful Sally. His haven is soon shattered by the advent of prison guards and the apparently unaccountable ruthlessness of Sally who has informed on him. Ruthless but not faithless, she turns up in the end to help him fulfil the promise he has made to transport her ‘to the Mississippi and feed her on buffalo’.

‘A thoroughly interesting historical novel by the popular scriptwriter of such serials as The Archers, Coronation Street, and Emmerdale Farm. As you might expect the quality of the dialogue in this book is brilliant, and it helps the story to move with pace and colour.’ Sunday Independent
