History is the tragedy of challenging omnipotence. A few remarkable people are destined to glide, to dip, but then soar again into the sphere of worldly memory. Some become gods. Others however, achieve a kind of greatness but lack the celebrity; history has looked the other way. Their deeds pass, forgotten in a generation; the name slips. It is good to tell of such and to picture one who imagined and risked all; who freed himself to overcome omnipotence, and paid the price with ignominy.
This book shares the story of a man, Charles Savage, whom the world has forgotten, but who commands our attention and recognition two hundred years on. His theater was Sweden, Australia and the South Pacific Islands..
This is the writer's first book, a historical epic.
