Occasionally, unknown individuals engage in momentous events. They associate with iconic people standing at the heart of nations. Samuel Saunders is one of these. Beginning at age 15 and continuing until his demise, Samuel of the Nations chronicles a lad engaged in events dramatically affecting people and nations on a continental scale. Based on first-hand accounts and historical records, the reader will experience, through Samuel's eyes, decisive clashes and convulsion of cultures during the 18th and 19th centuries. Details of tribulation in the Caribbean, American Colonies, and Canada and among Native American tribes become personal testimonies of truth. It is the story of real people engaged in events that set monumental changes in motion within the western hemisphere. Changes affecting the world well into the modern era.
