Jack Preston made it out of 1720 Boston with the help of Benjamin Franklin, but he’s not home yet! Still traveling through time with the help of a tattered American flag, he awakens in 1746 Fredericksburg, Virginia. Things get even crazier when he meets another Founding Father, the first President of the United States, George Washington.
After the family of a nearby farm is kidnapped during a violent raid, the boys vow to rescue them, no matter the danger involved. Deep in the wilds of Virginia, at an isolated Iroquois village, Jack and George’s survival abilities are tested like never before.
For a young man so far from home, the obstacles seem insurmountable. Will the help of a bright and energetic George Washington be enough to pull off a daring rescue? Will Grandpa’s flag work its magic again and move Jack a little closer to his home in the twenty-first century?
Thanks again to all my beta-readers for your invaluable input and to Matt Gravish for another perfect cover. This book is dedicated to my friends and family who made it possible.

Jack Preston, an ordinary kid on his 8th grade trip to Washington DC, finds himself mysteriously transported back in time to 1720 Massachusetts. Finding a world without cars, phones and other conveniences of modern life takes some getting used to, but he's even more surprised to meet a young Founding Father, Ben Franklin.
Being a righteous fellow, Ben befriends the confused and tattered Jack and offers him a place to stay. When Jack overhears a seedy plan that will most certainly ruin Ben's brother's printing business, Jack vows to help find the culprit before it's too late.
From the streets of Colonial Boston, to the cargo hold of a huge galleon, Jack realizes he's on the most bizarre, but important, adventure of his life. As Jack is thrown into a whirlwind of conspiracy, he realizes that much more than a printing company is at stake. An adventure is one thing, but being stuck hundreds of years in the past is quite another.
I'd like to thank everyone who read early versions of the book and helped me refine it. A big thanks to Matt Gravish as well for the amazing cover. And of course, thank you to all my friends and family who provided support and words of encouragement. I couldn't have done it without all of you!
