Book Summary

“A singular novel of hardship, hope, forgiveness, legacy and redemption,
Snow and Oakham is a powerful, very important debut novel that is epic
in its scope. Beautiful, intricate, frequently stunning, this story reaches,
almost literally, into every corner of the globe, and even further into the
human heart. Extraordinary.”
Edward Cruz
A rite of passage, an adventure saga, and a redemption tale wrapped
into one. “Snow and Oakham” is a story told across five continents:
paying visit to a world of orphans and villains, heroes and slaves,
cannibals and saints - all seen through the eyes of two brothers thrust
into an adventure for the ages.
When they are told that their birthright is buried in the Wild West
End orphans Henry Snow and Jack Oakham set out to discover
where they came from. And thus begins a journey to answer questions
at the heart of every man. A saga about fathers and sons and the
cost of forgiveness, “The Early Tales of Snow and Oakham is, ‘… An
important, sprawling work with a lion’s share of tenderness. It is proof
that rip-roaring adventure is alive and well.’”
