The Americans Are Coming

Atlantic Canadian eBooks

by Herb Curtis

eBook
For teenagers Dryfly Ramsey and Shadrack Nash, poor and ignorant in the world's terms but rich in the lore of the magical Miramichi, the annual influx of American anglers, with their money, fishing gear, and thirst for salmon seems like an invasion, and it sets the stage for action. A cast of quirky, unforgettable characters conspire to capture the imagination. In The Americans Are Coming, the voices of Brennan Siding ring out in the rich vernacular of New Brunswick's Miramichi region, a world immersed in myth, folklore, and the sulpherous belch of a nearby pulp mill. Herb Curtis has won the Thomas Head Raddall Prize and been shortlisted for the Commonwealth Prize. Though born near the Dungarvon River, he now lives in Fredericton. Literary Fiction, Humorous Fiction, Canadian author
