An ancient oak tree has seen glory and tragedybut nothing quite as spectacular as the showdown that's brewing

For nearly a thousand years, the Dimpole Oak has towered over this small East Coast town, witnessing the passage of history: duels and revolution, lovers' trysts and traitors' hangings, victory parades and midnight conspiracies. The farmer who owns the land beneath the tree likes to tell stories of the murders and witch trials that took place in its shade. Local children play on the oak's great roots and dig for buried treasure. The townsfolk plan a Dimpole Oak Day to celebrate their landmark.

Meanwhile, far away in India, a swami has a holy vision of the oak, and begins a journey to find it. Back in Dimpole, two boys take inspiration from the blackguards and pirates of the old farmer's tales, and challenge a local bully to a confrontation under the oak. As all these plots and plans converge, the mighty oak stands ready to witness another grand event.

This ebook features a personal history by Janet Taylor Lisle including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's own collection.
