Into the Americas (A novel based on a true story)

Novel resonates with reviewers.

 

Reviewer number 100, who headed their review “Housework Crusher,” says: “Yes, I said ‘housework crusher’. Instead of working on things I needed to have done, I wanted to sit and read the book. It has been some time since I have been so involved in a book. This was such an interesting book. At times I wondered what else could happen. Don’t forget to read the author’s note at the end. That was interesting as well.”

The review’s five-star rating gives the novel an average review rating of 4.5 stars, making it one of the more popular historical fiction novels on Amazon.

One of history’s greatest and yet least known true-life wilderness survival stories, Into the Americas  was inspired by the diary entries of young English blacksmith John Jewitt during his time aboard the brigantine The Boston  and also during his sojourn at Nootka Sound, on North America’s western seaboard, from 1802 to 1805. It will appeal to lovers of First Nations and Native American history.

Into the Americas  is a gritty, real-life adventure based on one of history’s greatest survival stories.

Nineteen year-old blacksmith John Jewitt is one of only two survivors after his crewmates clash with the fierce Mowachaht tribe in the Pacific Northwest. A life of slavery awaits John and his fellow survivor, a belligerent American sailmaker, in a village ruled by the iron fist of Maquina, the all-powerful chief. Desperate to taste freedom again, they make several doomed escape attempts over mountains and sea. Only their value to the tribe and John’s relationship with Maquina prevents their captors from killing them.

As the seasons pass, John ‘goes Indian’ after falling in love with Eu-stochee, a beautiful maiden. This further alienates him from his fellow captive whose defiance leads to violent consequences. In the bloodshed that follows, John discovers another side to himself – a side he never knew existed and a side he detests. His desire to be reunited with the family and friends he left behind returns even stronger than before.

The stakes rise when John learns Eu-stochee is pregnant. When a final opportunity to escape arises, he must choose between returning to civilization or staying with Eu-stochee and their newborn son.
