The story of Benedict Arnold’s march through Maine and Quebec in 1775 and the Forbes’s journey in the reverse direction in 1784 has been brought together in a most unique and amazing way by Arnold historian and author Norman R. Kalloch, Jr. 
His version of the Forbes’s heartbreaking journey has brought us a new and wonderful sense of what could have happened mingled with places and facts in Maine history. This ordeal is now and story no one will forget.

Kenny R. Wing, co-author, The Lost Villages of Flagstaff Lake and noted expert of Benedict Arnold’s march through the Maine wilderness.

Norm Kalloch is top shelf as a skilled story teller. He ranks right up there with Maine authors Paul Doiron and Gerry Boyle. This tale of a family’s struggle to survive the roughest area of the Maine wilderness is a masterpiece. You may find yourself burning through this haunting tale in one sitting. I ask myself “Could I ever survive such a saga? Do I know anyone who could have survived such a horrific ordeal?” No I don’t!

Gary Cobb, hunter and explorer of the Dead River area with 60 year’s experience and co-author,
