Summary
"From the creators of the award-winning Trickster and District Comics comes another graphic novel about adventure and tribal life. After his ship is burned and his shipmates killed, British sailor John Jewitt lived for nearly three years as a captive of the Mowachaht people, a Native American tribe on the west coast of Vancouver Island. During his captivity, Jewitt kept journals of his experiences and of tribal life. Follow his adventures as he plies his skills as a blacksmisth, saves the life of his only remaining crew member, and comes up with a strategy to free them both. Rebecca Goldfield is an award-winning writer/producer of both documentary films and graphic novels, with a focus on history and science. Her work has aired on NPR, PBS, the Discovery Channel, and National Geographic TV, among others. She was a contributor to the Harvey-nominated graphic novel District Comics, and is presently working on a television series about institutional corruption. Goldfield splits her time between Washington, DC; rural Pennsylvania; and New York City. Mike Short lives in Lorton, Virginia, where he watches DVDs with his wife, plays with his kids, chases his runaway dog, or burns the midnight oil drawing comics. He was a contributor to the Eisner-nominated graphic anthology Trickster: Native American Tales: A Graphic Collection. Matt Dembicki previously edited and contributed to the Eisner-nominated and Aesop Prize-winning Trickster: Native American Tales: A Graphic Collection. He also served at the helm of District Comics: An Unconventional History of Washington, D.C., an Harvey Award-nominated anthology that was named as one of the best books of 2012 by The Washington Post. Evan Keeling was born and raised in Washington DC, and received a BFA in graphic design from the Corcoran College of Art + Design. He is a founding member of the DC Conspiracy, a collective of Washington, DC area comic book artists and writers. His most recent work is coloring Xoc: The Journey of a Great White Shark for Oni Press and coloring a story in District Comics: An Unconventional History of Washington, D.C., one of The Washington Post's best books of 2012.
