From the Author
However, it took untold drafts and careful study of the region - including consultation with the tribal peoples of the Pacific Northwest - before we finally felt confident we had developed the original bare bones historical account into the epic adventure novel it deserved to be in literary format.
As with writing any novel based on or inspired by a true story, we had a million agonizing decisions to make along the way. Decisions like what aspects of the historical events needed to be added to, fictionalized or given more layers, and what could be kept exactly as occurred but expanded upon or "dramatized".
Our writing/storytelling process continues as we have since adapted Into the Americas to a feature film screenplay and are currently working toward getting a period movie produced.
Even after all these years of focusing on the history we still feel John Jewitt's story is one of the great true wilderness survival tales of all time.

The character develop was great. I got to know the main characters: Johnjewett (the book is based on his diaries); Manquina, the Indian chief; Sat Sot, the chief's son. And of course the fair maiden Eu-Stochee. The mystery: How will they escape? The love story: Will they learn to trust each other? Believe me, the authors of this book are much better are writing a great novel than I am at writing a great review.
I'd recommend this book, especially if you enjoy learning/reading about Native Americans.

His dreams of adventure and traveling to far off places becomes real when Captain John Salter asks him to join the crew aboard his brig, The Boston, which is setting sail to the Americas to trade muskets with the indigenous tribes who populate the new world, then sail on to China.
So begins Into The Americas, an historical fiction novel and a gripping adventure story.
With a great plot and storyline, plenty of exciting action, a diverse cast of colorful and believable characters and the authors well researched detail that brilliantly captures the atmosphere, customs, sights, sounds and surroundings of the period, you quickly become immersed into the world the authors have created for us.
This was a very enjoyable and entertaining read - I loved it- and look forward to reading more in the future from the talented father and son team of Lance and James Morcan.
Happy reading everyone!!!
