Summary
"In the mid-1870s, Daniel McCormack, a street urchin in New York's dangerous Five Points district, attracts the attention of a criminal gang with his astounding hand-eye co-ordination. Elsewhere, Lincoln Henry, a Tennessee-born child of ex-slaves, turns heads with his gift for geometry and mathematics, and Lily Mandeville, an orphan working with a traveling circus, discovers her talent for talking with dogs. Daniel's gang and Lily's circus travel to greener pastures in the west, while Lincoln becomes an apprentice to a steam-engine mechanic. In the boom town of Deadwood in the Black Hills of the Dakota Territory, they'll unite to oppose a power-mad mining baron. Vivid settings, family tragedies, and a diverse cast of criminals, circus folk, lawmen, engineers, entrepreneurs, and a Reconstruction-era family of former slaves make PRODIGIES an immersive reading experience."--Jacket flap
