In the early colonies, this country was on the precipice of becoming an autocratic theocracy. The battle for democracy and equal rights was sparked by a few characters, who are now lost and forgotten pieces of history. Forefathers & Founding Fathers is an adventure, a love story, and a tale of great persistence, chronicling those who fought to create the template for America. It is a tale that every American should know and yet most do not.
Travel back to 1620s London, where hardworking and creative Samuel met Mary, a unique and highly educated woman. Their journey would lead them to the colonies, where they were ostracized and sentenced to death for introducing the fundamental principles modern Americans hold dear.
This fast-paced historical fiction will make you question your understanding of the founding years of this free nation. These pioneers not only sparked the ideals of democracy 150 years before Jefferson and Adams but created the template our founding fathers used to build America. This expanded second edition explores even further into the lives of these impactful figures, giving a deeper perspective on their sacrifices and devotion to this country.

About the Author

Spending years working hard and persisting, Michael Gorton has earned degrees in Physics, Engineering and Law. After working 12 years as an engineer manager in corporate America, he is now a serial entrepreneur who has founded eight companies. Amongst those are notables: Internet Global, Palo Duro Records and TelaDoc, now the world's largest telemedicine company. Michael has been a prolific writer, authoring technical articles on a wide range of topics.

Forefathers & Founding Fathers is Michael’s 5th novel, at first intended just to give to friends and family, but while researching, Gorton realized this was an important and unknown story that needed to be told.

Michael is a runner who has completed 18 marathons, a black belt in Kenpo karate, and a mountain climber. He and his family are currently climbing the highest points of elevation in the fifty states, and have completed 38.

Michael is an 11th generation descendant of one of the founders of the Rhode Island colony: Samuel Gorton.
