about

Morning of Fire by Scott Ridley is the thrilling story of 18th century American explorer and expeditioner John Kedrick as he journeyed  for land and trade in the Pacific. Set against the backdrop of one of the most exciting and uncertain times in world history, John Kendrick’s odyssey aboard his sailing ship Lady Washington carries him from the shores of New England across the unexplored waters of the Pacific Northwest to the contentious ports of  China and the war-ravaged islands of Hawaii, all while avoiding intrigues and traps from the British and the Spanish. Morning of Fire is riveting  American and naval history that brings the era of George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson gloriously alive—a tale of danger, adventure, and discovery that  fans of Nathaniel Philbrick will not want to miss.<_o3a_p>

Descended from a long line of New England sailors and shipbuilders, Scott Ridley has written for theNew Republic,The Nation,Newsday, theDenver Post, and other publications. He lives with his family in East Harwich, Massachusetts.
