The setting is Felch, Michigan, in the Upper Peninsula, about 20 miles Northeast of Iron Mountain.  It’s the summer of 1943, in the middle of the Second World War.  Three boys who are best friends were called the Three Musketeers.  Often tagging along, to protect the boys in the wild, is a dog named Zipper.  The Musketeers, and their sisters have exciting experiences, and learn a lot about the outdoors.  ~From Author Jay Thurston~
