Summary
Roger the Minstrel tells his son to remember that "a road's a kind of holy thing. That's why it's a good work to keep a road in repair, like giving alms to the poor or tending the sick. It brings all kinds of people and all parts of England together." Adam is 11 years old and remembers his father's words when his dog, Nick, is stolen, his father disappears, and he must travel the road, searching for both." -- Jacket
