Gerald Richardson Brown (Metro Vancouver) has finished his trilogy of three books linked by the contents of a sea chest brought to America by early European settlers. In Road to Ganneious, (vol.1), five generations of a European family leave the mountains of Austria to finally settle in a former Iroquois village in Ontario. In The Villager, (vol.2), the protagonist grows up in a village in Ontario during hard times and war. In North to Crying Rock, (vol.3), a retired professor flees his earthquake devastated city, and finds refuge in an Indigenous village high in the mountains of British Columbia, itself a refuge from the clan’s flooded village on the coast.
