Title:  1634: The Ram Rebellion


Author: Eric Flint, Virginia DeMarce  


Copyright:  2006 by Eric Flint with Virginia DeMarce 


Short Synopsis:  This is the fifth in the Ring of Fire series which begins with 


ISBN:  10: 1-4165-2060-0, 13: 978-1-4165-2060-7


Long Synopsis:  FROM THE end flaps of the cover:  The Thirty Years War 
continues to ravage 17th century Europe, but a new force is gathering power and 
influence: The Confederated Principalities of Europe, an alliance between 
Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, and the town of Grantville, West Virginia.  
Grantville was hurled from the year 2000 to 1632 by a sort of cosmic joke or 
accident and has become, under the leadership of Mike Stearns, the embodiment 
of American Freedom: Liberty, with a sword in her hand.  In Franconia, whose 
peasants have revolted several times, even before the arrival of the West 
Virginians, the living example of American freedom and justice has inspired the 
rise of an independent revolutionary movement, flying the banner of the head of 
a ram.  The West Virginians fully approve of liberating the peasants from the 
nobility, but they are also aware of how revolutionary movements can lead to 
bloodbaths.  And avoiding that deadly possibility will require all of their 
future knowledge plus all their plain old American horse-trading diplomacy. 


Notes:The copyright and the ISBN have been verified by a sighted person. The
