About this title
After a shockingly dangerous voyage on the galleon, "China the passengers, which included a group of young would-be brides - orphan girls from Rotterdam, arrive in Cape Town. Rejoin the young Huguenot couple, Pierre Joubert and his wife, Isabeau. Each settler, is expected to develop a farm- on free land. A major task when you have to deal with lions, elephants and other wild creatures - warthogs, baboons and pythons. Each family must build their own house, clear the frightening land and raise crops - as they promised they would. Follow their struggles - to not only survive - but to tackle and defeat the many challenges they face".About the Author:
Kenn Joubert of SAGA-TREK NANAIMO BC CANADA As a youth my father used to become upset at the amount of time that I spent "scribbling". At 16, I sold my first short story to a major magazine - and was paid for it! I took creative writing English courses in High School and wrote many articles for newspapers and magazines. While in a career as a Banker in a small village in South Africa, I also acted as "Community Correspondent" for the newspaper, the "Natal Witness" in Maritzburg. After hitch-hiking around Europe and the UK, I settled in Canada where I again "banked" but wrote for local newspapers. Finally, in 1967, Canada's "Centenial Year" my Centenial Project was "to upgrade my educatiion from a Grade 10 level"; and I attended the University of Calgary where I eventually, after Graduate Studies, became a Clinical Psychologist - the very first "Community Psychologist" in Canada. In my 50s, I was a "Candidate" for the Canadian Space program. When the dust settled, there were over 3700 applicants and when they finally cut the candidates from 600 to 60, I lost out - but am still very proud that "I tried anyhow". In 2006, I self-published the "First book in the Huguenot Trilogy" ESCAPE TO FREEDOM; and in 2008, I finished the "Second book" FOLLOW THE WIND. I am now working diligently on my new novel, the "Final book in the Huguenot Trilogy, THE EARLY YEARS which I hope to finish in March 2011. So far, I have 4 more future novels in my backpack. After spending my early youth Banking with three different banks on three different continents, I loved my new career as a Clinical Psychologist for Menetal health in Banff, Alberta and Nanaimo, BC. I retired at 65 to spend a month of research in Provence, France with my wife touring a miriad of historic sites. Fern and I now live in a cottage on the inner coast of Vancouver Island off the West Coaset of Canada in the Pacific Ocean. We have two eagles living in a nest which
