Beaverton, OR, November 02, 2005 --(PR.com
)-- Our author Ken Boire claims he was born facing the wind on the icy shores of the Bering Sea. From a scattering of tiny shacks on a remote gravel cape near Nome, he became a consulting economist. His novel, Inherit the Tide is not about his odyssey, it is about woman power. His observations about the incredible nurturing power of grandmothers, drives this debut novel. Realistically, the story is riveting. It is told with simplicity, feeling, humor, and excitement.
Along the way there is Arctic adventure, peril, romance of the sea, Seattle as a pioneer lumber town, and an assortment of colorful characters. All of this is guided by the strong, brave, women the book is really about. It is a story that expands from primitive Indian villages, to include Paris, the opera, sailing ships, and of course Seattle.
It is a cross-cultural, cross-generational novel of the Pacific Northwest with homage to female protagonists. Boire has woven a timeless message into this read. And, yes, it really is possible to inherit the tide.
The Native American author, Ken Boire, lives in Beaverton, Oregon but spends a great deal of time at his Puget Sound beach house. He has authored numerous non-fiction works fitting research niches for specific customers. Inherit the Tide is his first novel, and will be followed by release of In the Company of Fishers during 2006, and after that Seattle Islands.
Inherit the Tide, captures the reader while being devoid of foul language. It must be a good story and well crafted because it refuses to rely on gratuitous sex, violence, or fantasy characters. It will be interesting to see how well a good book can sell when it is not the product of a large publishing house. Published for the American Arts and Literature Project by Outskirts Press; it is available through all of the large on-line book stores. If your looking for a gift for one of the women in your life (that educated Pacific Northwest outdoor adventuress, or even Grandma), this is the book for you.
