Item description for The Incredible Death and Revival of William Morgan by William Jackson...
This is the author's second novel, and like the first, also based on a true story. The first one titled, And the Sea Shall Hide Them, actually took place in history perhaps seventy years after the one you are about to read. This story centers around William Morgan, a Virginian living in Batavia, New York. He was a distant relative of the author. Morgan was of an impulsive nature, doing what he thought was the right thing to do. This eventually brought him in contention with the Masonic Order in Batavia, New York in 1826. His long and troublesome life eventually found him isolated on Utila Island in the Western Caribbean. He had been kidnapped! He was one of the first men to begin shipping bananas commercially to the United States, an enterprise that eventually grew into a vast business. Despite these good tidings, which included a loving wife and children, his life was a troubled one. However, his legacy to the small island of Utila was a noteworthy one, having a beneficial blessing on the early settlers of that island.

More About William Jackson
William Jackson was born on the tiny island of Utila, in the Bay Islands of Honduras. They were a British colony for several years, the early settlers arriving there from the British Isles, via the Cayman Islands. At the young age of eleven he was lured to the plains of Western Kansas, close to Dodge City.
Bill knew he wanted to write from the time he was high school editor of the small junior class paper. He remembers the prod of excitement seeing something he had written mimeographed on the cheap paper and cranked out by hand. And The Sea Shall Hide Them is his first published novel. He has previously published a book of poetry, has enough for another volume but is currently working on his memoirs. The latter has to do with he and his four other brothers growing up like tropical Huck Finns and Tom Sawyers on a challenging island and surrounding waters, in dangerous times -- and many happy and enduring adventures.
