The story is set in Canada on the Aspotogan Peninsula and Halifax environs of Nova Scotia. It is the story of time travel, friendship, the righting of wrongs and ultimately the fulfilment of a dream. The story opens in 1962 in Lunenburg County at Bird Doggley’s woodland camp. The area is charged with the spirits of its past inhabitants, the Mi’kmaq Indians. After a mystical experience in the woods Bird has a tumble in the forest that literally causes him to fall through time. In his present day new world he encounters the grandchildren of his best friend, Bobby Bean who are on holiday from England. With their help and that of the mysterious Jonny Eagle they attempt to solve a local mystery of stolen gold bullion. If this goes to plan, then there is the small matter of whether Bird will make it back to his own time. If he does will he change the course of history and future events? Time will tell.
