New England, 1643. In a walled English village crouched at the edge of a wilderness believed to be haunted by monsters and devil-worshipping savages, Will Poole chafes against the constraints of Puritan society and is visited by strange hallucinations that fill him with unease. Hunting in the forest, he encounters Squamiset, an enigmatic native elder whose influence will open the door to possibilities well beyond the narrow existence his upbringing led him to expect. The meeting leads to a dangerous collision of worldviews, an epic sea voyage, and the making of an unforgettable friendship. Green Writers Press is thrilled to present new paperback and audio editions of Will Poole’s Island, a novel of literary adventure, mystery, and wonder that offers readers of all ages an experience of early America that feels fresh and entirely relevant to our own times.

About the Author
Tim Weed’s English ancestors came to America in the 1630s, where his Native American ancestors had already lived for thousands of years. Curiosity about both groups is what led him to travel back to the 17th century; a sense that something important was missing from our contemporary understanding of that period of what caused him to linger there. Tim is the winner of a Writer’s Digest Popular Fiction Award, and his short fiction collection, A Field Guide to Murder & Fly Fishing, made the 2018 Eric Hoffer Book Award Grand Prize Shortlist.
