An epic 1875 immigration saga, a love story and an epidemic. Would you survive?

On a fateful day in October 1875, Nathan Olason steps foot onto the soil of a new foreign country called Canada. With natural sand beaches and breathtaking sunsets, it has been nicknamed paradise. Except it proves to be anything but.

With storm surges, emerging governments, racism and dwindling food supplies, Nathan and his family struggle to stay alive in this foreign wilderness. With the help of a beautiful Cree woman named Anwa, they learn to fish and hunt, surviving against all the odds.

Then just when they think they have prevailed, tragedy strikes an ominous blow, a smallpox epidemic that decimates villages, quarantines the town of Gimli, but most of all threatens to claim what he holds dear the most.

Would you survive?

Be one of the last men standing. Follow Nath on a heroic journey of immigration, manhood, immense love, resilience and perseverance beyond anything we know.

About the Author

J. A. Boulet is the passionate author of The Olason Chronicles, a historical saga of immigration, love, perseverance and an epidemic. The first book in the series, The Strong Amongst Us, was coincidentally released in the spring of 2020, during the Covid 19 pandemic. J. A. Boulet was born and raised in Western Canada as a first generation Canadian from European descent. Her parents landed in St. John's, NFLD as refugees in 1956, a direct result of the Hungarian Revolution. She was born many years later, raised in a strong Hungarian culture and proudly calls Canada home to this day. J. A. Boulet started writing poetry at the age of five and progressed to short stories and novels during her teen years. She has a keen interest in history, healing, family bonds and global conflicts. J. A. Boulet writes with a spine-tingling realism like none other, grabbing your emotions and refusing to let go. The Strong Within Us Book 2 was subsequently released on November 11, 2020. She currently lives in Canada with her two teenaged sons and a crested gecko named Mossio.
