About the Author

Scott Wyatt was born in Portland, Oregon on March 3, 1951. He grew up in Sandpoint, Idaho, attended Stanford University and the University of Washington School of Law, and entered the practice of law in 1976. In 1999, he founded the Companion Flag Project to elevate and sustain public awareness of all that human beings have in common, their differences notwithstanding. The underpinnings of that campaign are reflected in the closing arguments of attorney Jason McQuade in 'Beyond the Sand Creek Bridge.' Scott has four children and five grandchildren. He continues to write and work from a hilltop home located sixteen miles east of Seattle--a home he shares with his wife Rochelle.

More About the Author

I was born in Portland, Oregon and grew up in Sandpoint, Idaho. I earned degrees from Stanford University and the University of Washington, and became a lawyer 1976.

In 1999, years after traveling to the former Soviet Union, I founded the Companion Flag Project to elevate awareness of all that human beings have in common, their differences notwithstanding. The underpinnings of this campaign are reflected in the closing arguments of attorney Jason McQuade in Beyond the Sand Creek Bridge, and again in "The Sanori Flag Debate," the appendix to Dimension M.

I have four children and six grandchildren. My wife, Rochelle, is a talented Seattle-area actress. We are fortunate to live in a beautiful home overlooking Lake Sammamish, fifteen miles east of Seattle in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.

The writer has one of my most desired qualities. He makes it so visual, you feel like you are there. Gripping and powerful from beginning to end.

I enjoyed this book and think the author is a great story teller. I loved the end and felt he was true to the characters throughout and I really did have a hard time putting it down once I got into it. I esp. liked the description of the lake and the mountains and steam boats. Jason McQuade does a good job of honoring his values and those of others. Get busy and write another book!

Mr. Wyatt has written an excellent book capturing an important part of history, a detail that is often left out in general education. I don't want to be too specific and give the story line away, but the attention to detail and writing style is beyond a doubt some of the best I have seen from a first time novelist. From the very beginning I was hooked, and that speaks volumes because this is not my typical read. So even if you think it isn't for you, pick it up, because I believe that everyone can find something in this book. Usually I recycle my books, pass them on to Libraries or other places, but this one has a special place on my shelf. It made me take a hard look at varying work ethics between cultures and also how we treated people differently, and gave me a new insight into our culture today. Thank you, Mr. Wyatt, for a wonderful book and I can't wait to see if there is something new on the horizon!

I'm always astonished when an author brings to life people, times, and attitudes they could not have possibly experienced themselves. Scott Wyatt manages to occupy the minds of mid-19th century Chinese immigrants and western territorial settlers with conviction and believability. The frontier atmosphere of this richly detailed novel reflects Wyatt's Pacific Northwest upbringing. And, while a legal drama shapes the spine of "Beyond the Sand Creek Bridge," and falls into Wyatt's comfort zone as a retired attorney, the author excavates the implements and behaviors of a forgotten era with an archaeologist's passion and arranges his artifacts into a colorful and moving story. In the process, Wyatt has elevated what it means to be an independent author, demonstrating that great writing lives beyond the borders patrolled by the traditional publishing industry.

This first effort by Mr. Wyatt turned out to be not only a page turner, but also a thought provoking peek into a brutal and little remembered part of Western frontier history. No stock characters, but real people caught up in their time and prejudices. The ending was especially meaningful and exciting for me becasue it outlined the thought process that the main character uses in his defense of the accused Chinese laborer. It is the same process behind a powerful real life project that Mr. Wyatt founded,The Companion Flag -an effort that readers of this book may well be inspired to look into. Our book club of 30 years has invited Mr. Wyatt to speak to us about his book.

This is a story about the west that is less told. It is not the Louis L'Amour version. (I love his books)
This book goes beyond good guy and bad guy to a more complex look at human nature and need.
Many different cultures came to the United States for a better way of life. This is a story of the Chinese making their way to America. A front seat view of another aspect of America's great melting pot. The book is an easy read with compelling characters, all finding there way thru life and the unexpected. Marie D.

Read it in a day. Hoping for a happy holiday for the mind, I picked it up two weeks later to read my highlighted portions. Didn't work. Started highlighting between the highlights. Should have spraypainted--it would have been cheaper. Look at this: (p.113 in paperback) "The sun-heated planks scorched his bare feet, and when he reached the shore he stopped for a minute to wade in a small circle of shaded grass." See? Simply lovely. Vivid, rhetorically spot-on style. Go, Wyatt, go!
