Boyhood adventures lead our hero to confront himself, and to forge new world-views.
A forty-word summary:
“A fourteen-year-old Manchester boy flees to America seeking freedom and independence: A surreal conflict with the gods has not been part of his plan, but a natural catastrophe renders him unconscious, and he boards a ghost ship among colorful characters, haunting memories … and long-forgotten fears.”
Manchester, England: A youth dreams of sailing to America, and ends up in the Selkirk Mountains, working on a transcontinental railroad until the “Snow Spirits” come and drive them away. As always, he returns to the sea.
This is my first full length book, my first novel.
Although I have written many news stories, it is exciting to be able to add to the list of accomplishments that magical word: novelist. Now all I need to do is get the word out, and I hope that you, my reader, will help me with this, and if you do, I will be forever grateful.
Thank you for reading or reviewing the book and making my joy complete.
