The American Zig-Zag - by Van Reid & Co.
Imagine that you are walking Portland's Congress Street with the Gentlemen of the Club on a bright fall day when Mr. Eagleton pauses at the window of a favorite book-seller. Mr. Ephram suggests that you all go in. And Mr. Thump first spies the striking cover to a new literary journal - The American Zig-Zag - which (in the fashion of the day) offers short stories ranging from the comic to the poignant to the suspenseful, poetry, essays, cartoons, and even music and lyrics, and a serialized novel – and all illustrated (in the fashion of the day) by a host of fine artists.
This highly acclaimed series of historical romantic comic adventure takes place in late 19th century Maine.
The American Revolution has ended. The District of Maine remains a part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Deep in these north woods, a young man--a boy, really, who has never been away from his home in Sheepscott Great Pond--sets off at his mother's urging to search for a person he has never met....
