A Yankee in the Land of the Morning Calm-Book 2
My latest book titled, A Yankee in the Land of the Morning Calm: Gold and Rail, Book Two 1895-1900 is at the publisher. I expect an early fall 2007 release.
It’s the second novel in The Yankee in the Land of the Morning Calm trilogy. Like Book One, it’s a historically accurate and gazes back into late nineteenth century America and Korea. In Book Two, we find strong U.S. influence unfold in Korea as American entrepreneurs gain gold mining, railroad, and electric trolley concessions.
The Yankee in the Morning Calm series….
The series of short, concise books is reminiscent of the incredibly popular American Dime Novel of the late nineteenth century. When completed, the trilogy will also be available in a hardbound version. A Korean language translation is also underway!
It is my wish that the story adds to the understanding of Korea and the role Americans played in the opening of Korea to the West. Look for the new book this fall.
