Lieutenant Preserved-Fish MacAdam could not lead these men. Each soul had to find his own rightful place.
As you will soon discover, all souls are not alike.
And Lieutenant Preserved-Fish MacAdam’s soul was very different than most.
Lieutenant MacAdam was a rather tall man with a white closely cropped beard and a wild mustache. His cheeks and eyes always had that dark and hollow look; even when he was alive. He was thin, wiry, and his face was creased with the leathery lines of an outdoorsman; which he had been. He was a creature of the forest, not much different than those creatures he had hunted and trapped in the Adirondack Mountains.
Lieutenant MacAdam will fit well in these North Woods.
