"William E. Emba"|
An historical novel based on Mason and Dixon. (Includes references!) It was self-published in a first printing of 700, and a second printing of 200. The author is/was a member of the Pennsylvania Society of Land Surveyors, which lists the book.
The author inserted some trigonometric calculations verbatim from Charles Mason's journal into the novel.
In addition, there is a humorous scene where young Jeremiah Dixon, upon
getting a scholarship, is set upon by his steady girlfriend to do what
he can at last afford to do, namely, get engaged and marry her. But
Dixon is too much of a space cadet to figure out her meaning, and none
of her feminine wiles can distract him from his mathematical studies.
(As a matter of historical fact, the two never married, but they did
end up living together.)
