He takes a family and transports them across the Atlantic into the new world to start a new life. The lawyer is made the magistrate for the whole area around the town that is created. The whole endeavor is funded by the politician who ahs been made a Lord and the new British representative in Canada. The family endures the trips and finds themselves in the hands of a hardened bush man named Cox and he helps them in the new venture. The magistrate must deal with trappers and local Indians and keep the peace. This is a story of a very old colony town and the trials and tribulations of government mistakes and a land where no law had existed.
