Imagine living in a world where every facet of your existence is beyond your control.

Imagine living in a world where your God-given physical traits are resented and reviled.

Imagine living in a world where your humanity is subject to judicial and social debate.

Imagine living in a world where the government of the people, by the people, and for the people is explicit and implicit in denying you the most basic of human rights-life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

For James, this isn't imagination but a horrifically callous reality. Despite the stacked odds against him, despite the incredible obstacles he faced, this African American survived and thrived during his journey.

A Journey Far: Ibere (Beginnings) starts with James being sold into bondage in the 1840s antebellum South and ends in 1850s New York City as the Confederate attack on Ft. Sumter, South Carolina, precipitates the U. S. Civil War.

In this work of Historical Fiction-James reacts to and interacts with historical people and events as his journey takes him far from his brutal beginnings, through a life of malicious prejudice, and toward a future rife with hopes of freedom, promises of equality, and revelations of self.

About the Author

AJ Sam, born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida, is a public school teacher in Volusia County, Florida. A 4-year U.S. Air Force veteran (1975-1980), he graduated from St. Petersburg Jr. College and worked in the Engineering and Computer fields through the '80s into the 90s. In 1997, he accepted a calling from God, returned to college, and earned an Education degree (Special Education) from University of South Florida. This began his 20+ year educational career in the school districts of Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Volusia counties (Florida). In 2003, he again accepted God's call-this time to the ministry-and was ordained in 2007. A sports fan-Tampa Bay Bucs, Rays & Lightning-he enjoys watching and attending games. He's married and lives in Daytona Beach, Florida. He has a daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter. An avid history buff, his writing attests to this fact with his attention to the details of the historical events, facts, and characters he weaves throughout his fiction. As an author of historical fiction, AJ Sam believes in the necessity of studying the past-but not repeating the past-instead learning from the past to ensure a brighter future for humanity.
