The Wind From All Directions

In March, author Ron Thompson was our guest and spoke about the history on which The Wind From All Directions is based: the exploration of the Pacific northwest, the maritime fur trade, the Nootka Crisis, the Spanish Armament, and the impromptu diplomatic confrontation between the RN’s George Vancouver and Spanish commodore Juan Francisco de la Bodega y Quadra in Yuquot, Friendly Cove, in 1792. A great discussion ensued (this week, as well as in 1792!).

The Wind From All Directions is set in 1792 in the Pacific northwest. It is published by Double Dagger Books and is available on Amazon around the world, Barnes and Noble in the United States, and Waterstones in the UK. Ask for it at your local bookstore or library.
