From mayhem to moguls, FAMILY PRYDE is the gripping, action adventure of escape and banishment from civilized Britain into the wild heyday of American expansionism. Through peril at sea, the horrors of Fenian terrorism and the craze of empire building, this epic struggle recounts the exploits of Edmond Pryde who, desperate and daring, forged a new empire by sheer force of will. This is the sweeping saga of a generation, from the crucible of the Hoxton slums to the heights of American industrial domination. There is revenge, the passion of the dispossessed, and the victorious but bittersweet homecoming of the vanquished. Throughout, this is the legacy of nation builders at their best. It is the vital quest that has made America great.

About the Author
By age 16 Kim Vincent was captivated by the metaphysical. This fascination is still with him and shows up in his eight books. In his 30's he was hosting home discussion groups and playing the organ in two different churches. By age 40's he had one of the largest collection of metaphysical books in Canada and developed a 160 acre spiritual retreat which was attended by folks from all over the world. At the same time he organized university seminars and was featured on various radio shows and hosted a 33 week television series entitled "This Psychic World." It was then that an editor from Doubleday came across some of his lecture papers and asked him to write an encyclopedia on parapsychology. That was almost 30 years ago. Once hooked, he has been writing ever since, during which time he had a construction business, a land development company, an architectural design practice, a vinyl window factory and a pewter foundry. The encyclopedia, updated and in a more popular style, is now available under the title GETTING REAL. According to Kim: "Things have not been dull. If I've got it figured right, I'm now on my third life, doing what I love most."
