McCANN The Beginning

Many great men influenced the taming of the West, men such as Wyatt Earp, Bill Hickok and Bill Cody, but one family stood above the rest with exceptional courage and strength, and brought solidarity to the towns and states of the West; a family whose pledge to law and order helped limit the lawlessness of gunmen and outlaws; a family known as McCann.
In this first part of the McCann saga, Eric McCann is wrongfully accused of
the murder of a noble, and is forced to flee his hometown of Ayr, Scotland, as a stowaway on a ship to America. After mutiny from the crew just north of Charleston, he is wounded and rescued by a Cherokee War Party and taken to their village in the Nantahala Mountains of North Carolina.
Eric spends much of his life with the Cherokee people – marrying one of them and having three sons – Great Bear, Brodie and William. But even though Eric learns to love his people, he never forgets Angela - the girl he left behind in Scotland.
When Eric learns of his mother's illness, he decides to return to Scotland once more to see her before she dies – and to see if his feelings for Angela still remain.
"Not since Louis Lamour have I read a more intriguing western about the settlement of the west" – Michael Romance
"I felt as if I were experiencing all the episodes with the characters. I'm looking forward to the next book" – John Helliwell
