More About This Book

Overview

The Great Northern: Land of the Flatheads, is the first novel of a three novel series set in the Oregon Territories after the time period of the journey of Lewis and Clark but before statehood turned these northwest lands into Montana, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming and Utah.
In 1844, three years after the first wagon trains headed across the Oregon Trail, the Clayspring family is hungry for new lands in the Willamette Valley and they risk the long journey from Independence, Missouri across the arid and windy plains of the west. Inspired by news of rich farmland, Joseph Clayspring gives up his plot of rocky earth in search of a better life for his family. Relying heavily on the information from guides, trappers and businessmen, the young family must be prepared for the worst of situations.
The journey proceeds without delay until the wagon train is attacked by a large group of bloodthirsty natives intent on repelling the entire wagon train of farmers and craftsmen from their northern hunting lands. The story involves many colorful characters of the Oregon Territories and the complex situation that developed when many of their lives became intertwined with tragedy and success. The cast of this story includes mountain men, trail guides, Native Americans, whiskey traders and the Jesuits that penetrated the Indian settlements long before any pioneers entered the territories. Although each group is derived from vastly different backgrounds, the story encompasses the many truths and lies they encounter in hopes of finding a new life in a new land.
The Oregon Trail which stretches west across the endless prairies of the western territories remains a marked dividing line formany adventurers and pioneers searching for the Promised Land. The North Country looms as a great-unknown territory filled with danger and mysterious characters. The Clayspring family becomes separated and a horrifying incident drives one brother to search the far regions of the North Country for a lost family member. The story unfolds through the eyes of two brothers; one brother thrust into an unfamiliar world of Native American culture and the other brother forced to live and understand the harsh reality of frontier life amongst the settlements of a young nation. The Great Northern, with its rugged beauty and formidable enemies, will bring to life the stark reality of survival in early America. Follow the trail into the Land of the Flatheads.
