In 1644 the New World was a wild and dangerous place. The Swedish flagship, The Kalmar-Nyckel, is the majestic vessel, which brings the Swedes to the Delaware River area to carve out a colony amongst the Lennie Lenape Indians and to steal away territory from the Dutch. But home in Sweden is another battle for life. Johan Mattsson has returned home from the war, but a battle still rages within him. The story of Johan Mattsson and the history around him are all based on fact. Travel the salty sea with the Kalmar-Nyckel as she weathers storms, adventure, and pirates. Be there at the humble beginnings of the little known Swedish colony, New Sweden. And walk with Johan, broken in body and spirit, as he returns home to his family, to God, and the love of his life only to be torn away by his dark secret that could cost him his own life.
