Editorial Reviews


"The characters are well-drawn, and interesting, as is the entire novel, while the author does not shy away from tackling various 'political' issues with a fair-minded, balanced approach. Despite its length, this was an absorbing read . . . The author's notes about what parts of his novel were fact was also well worth reading."
-- Anne Holt, Discovering Diamonds Historical Fiction Reviews

"A thoroughly good read, with lively engaging characters, clever blending of real and fictional personages, a strong historical narrative, and some excellent plot twistings throughout. I really enjoyed this entertaining book, and recommend it."
-- Sam Law, It's Good To Read book blog

"An incredibly visual and epic story of a changing culture and landscape. It's a beautifully told story about family, friends and community through colonisation . . . A wonderful mixture of historical fact and fiction, expertly written."
-- Peter Donnelly, founder, The Reading Desk

""A terrific novel, telling of the 'discovery' of Manhattan Island by Henry Hudson, and the beginning of the callous and careless ruination of the Native American way of life . . . This is a long book, but at no time did it feel overwritten or padded out . . . Highly recommended."
-- Terry Tyler, Terry Tyler Book Reviews

"A good one for fans of Mannahatta."
-- Dr. Eric W. Sanderson, author of Mannahatta: A Natural History of New York City

"Harald Johnson's 1609 [The Manhattan Series, Book 1] will entice you with the distinctive voices of explorer Henry Hudson and Dancing Fish of the Manahate band, a compelling drama, and just the right amount of historical detail to transport you in time and place." 
-- M.K. Tod, author of Time and Regret and historical fiction blogger at A Writer of History

From the Author

The hidden story behind the birth of New York City. A historical novel based on true events. (Includes the negotiations and legendary "$24 purchase" of Manhattan in 1626.)
