This Summer: the story of a remarkable man during the American Revolutionary War—a unique work of historical fiction by John Francis Wilson

John Francis Wilson. Colonel Jonathan: An American Story. Riversong Books, 2018.

This book is an unusual work of historical fiction—more history than fiction. A heavily-researched story of a remarkable man and his remarkable family, who lived in remarkable times and who have left an impact that intertwines with the history of America and extends from the eastern ocean to the western one. It is a story worth rescuing from beneath grandma’s back porch, and gluing back together, despite all the difficulties in doing so.

Colonel Jonathan: An American Story
Coming in summer of 2018 in paperback and ebook
