The Wind: Tales From a Revolution - West-Florida by Lars D. H. Hedbor

The American Revolution Reaches the Gulf Coast

Gabriel is a simple sailor, doing the bidding of his Captain and King, when he is swept up in a storm that changes his life in ways that he could never have anticipated.

Carlotta yearns for her lost home, and is searching for her lost husband, but both remain elusive in a world that has been turned upside-down by forces far outside of her control.

When the storm that is Governor Bernardo de Gálvez breaks over them both, neither will ever be the same -- and nor will their world.

About the Author

What made the American Colonists turn their back on their King, and fight for independence? How were they different from us–and how were their hopes and fears familiar to our own hearts?

These are the sorts of questions that Lars D. H. Hedbor thinks are important to ask in examining the American Revolution, and in the pages of his novels, he suggests some possible answers.

His first novel, The Prize, was published in 2011, followed by The Light in 2013, and The Smoke, The Declaration, and The Break in 2014, and The Wind in 2015.

He's also written extensively about this era for the Journal of the American Revolution, and has appeared as a featured guest on a Discovery Network program, The American Revolution, which premiered nationally on the American Heroes Channel in late 2014.

He is an amateur historian, linguist, brewer, fiddler, astronomer and baker. Professionally, he is a technologist, marketer, writer and father. His love of history drives him to share the excitement of understanding the events of long ago, and how those events touch us still today.
