About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
In the 1800's, an Irish Clan Chief sends his previously pampered son to America with a 25,000 acre land grant in Northwest Wisconsin. Race (Radford Arthur Cearnach Ennis II) learns to thrive in the raw, timber covered, unpopulated area where large logging operations are a law unto themselves. To defend his land, Race forms an alliance with a small, local Indian tribe and a group of River Rats from St. Louis. The deaths of his father and brother require him to return to Ireland to take on the family responsibilities.
Time and Tides
Race finds the clan starving and persecuted due to the potato famine and their treatment by the British. He determines to move the entire clan to America. The work draws from the history of the United States from New Orleans up the Mississippi River to the Chippewa River in Northern Wisconsin. In these years prior to the Civil War, Native Americans, Black persons, and immigrants were all trying to find their way in a growing changing country.
