About the Author:

Colin Sargent is a playwright and the author of three books of poetry. He is the founder and publisher of "Portland Magazine." He lives in Portland, Maine.

Review:

"Sargent's debut novel is a stylish look at the fate of Sacagawea's baby son, Jean Baptiste Charbonneau . . . Increasingly haunted by his mother, Baptiste revisits her in memories and visions that lend themselves nicely to Sargent's lyrical prose . . . an impressively rounded portrait of Baptiste, this novel will satisfy fans of American history." "--Publishers Weekly"

"Magic. There is real heart . . . real depth and humanity . . . full of polish and authority . . . I stand to applaud [Sargent's] talent. He's the real thing." --Jack Driscoll, author, "How Like an Angel"

"From the beginning to the novel's spellbinding conclusion, playwright and poet Sargent allows us an intimate glimpse into what could have been the heart of Jean-Baptiste. This memorable novel will captivate all who read it. Highly recommended." "--Library Journal", starred review

"It's spooky like Hawthorne, with a Toni Morrison-like sense of place. It's a huge and important project." --Joan Connor, author, "History Lessons"

"A grand and interesting romp through history, an intriguing, masterfully written novel." --Michael C. White, author, "Soul Catcher"

"The book is beautifully written, and has a good sense of time and place." "--Historical Novels Review"

"Strongly reflecting the author's ability as a playwright and poet, [this book] is rich with unusual historical detail. . . . It is a fascinating and ultimately tragic tale of a usually forgotten player in this country's story." "--Denver Post"

"One of the most satisfying works of fiction that I have read in years. . . . Sargent sends the youthful Baptiste on a multi-leveled grand tour of discovery that never lets up or disappoints." "--Maine Sunday Telegram"
