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.

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!

In 1997, I accompanied my wife, a nurse, to mainland China. The purpose of the trip was both professional and sight seeing oriented, the former, to visit several hospitals to learn something of the Chinese health care system. Beijing was the first stop on our tour.
Accompanying our entourage were two tour guides: a European woman, also a nurse, and a young adult Chinese male. The nurse acted as our intermediary with the medical people we encountered, while the Chinese fellow was our "official" host and tour guide. He spoke excellent English. His role, however, was to make sure we stayed on the scheduled itinerary as structured by the Chinese government. If there was any interest in deviating from the planned tour, we were instructed to take that up with the nurse.
The itinerary for the trip was carefully laid out, and we were instructed to stay on schedule. But as for the sight seeing side, I wanted to visit the Hard Rock Cafe so I could get a shirt; however, it was not on the schedule. The nurse not being available, I planned to seek out out our Chinese guide with my request. Luckily, as it turned out, the nurse intercepted my intention and told me to not interact directly with the Chinese guide--that she would. Were I, an American tourist, to ask him directly if we could deviate from the plan, she said, he knowing that we could not would become acutely embarrassed by my request and thus "lose face". From that experience I came to learn during our trip the significance which the Chinese attach to saving face.
Beyond the Sand Creek Bridge by Scott Wyatt, is at times an excruciating examination of this aspect of Chinese culture.

This was a beautifully written book, one of those books where you can see things in your minds eye. You can even see this as a movie and imagine certain actors who should star in the book. I am a lover of historical fiction. I've never read about this time in history. This author brings you to the Idaho Territory and shows you a vivid view of the past. This is now one of my favorite writers. I will look for more of his books.

I found Beyond the Sand Creek Bridge to be very skillfully written, almost poetic in its presentation and rich in its vivid description.

Scott Wyatt spins a very captivating and sometimes graphic story about a rather past-over part of Pacific Northwest History. The story serves up a full helping of food-for-thought. The Chinese migration to the western U.S., their contributions to mining, the building of railroads, and the provision of various services as well as the subsequent outbreaks of anti-Chinese violence are mere footnotes in our history books. Through his story, Wyatt puts names and faces to these forgotten people. He reminds us that we should not only celebrate the differences that various cultures present but that we must also look for the commonality that joins us all as people.

I originally purchased the Kindle version of this book but snapped up a printed copy just to have it in my personal library.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and heartily recommend it.

For those that enjoy a bit of history entwined with a legal thriller, enjoy. The author brings the characters to life and richly explains the cultural differences between the rural settlers of Idaho and the Chinese workers who came to this country for financial reasons. I was swept away by the story from the beginning and could not see how the story could end happily. Prejudice and cultural differences are dominant themes that never seem to lead to good outcomes. Yet the author stays true to the characters, their hearts and beliefs, and the time period and finds a way to bring the story to a satisfying and realistic conclusion. The author's passion for accentuating that our differences are the same things that should bind us together is a strong central theme. Very enjoyable story.

I enjoyed this book for several reasons. The setting of the story takes place where I live, Sandpoint, Idaho, and Wyatt's descriptions were very accurate. I was aware of the history of the Chinese people in our area, but this book brought to life my hometown in a very real way. I really appreciate the background knowledge presented in the early pages of the book to help me as the reader understand the Chinese culture and its stark contrast to the Idaho Territory of the 1800's. The complexities in the lives of the characters made the scenes totally engaging and believable. I was touched by the last two chapters of the book and will be impacted by it for a long time.
