The Little Englishman : A tale of kidnapping, slavery, Indians, hardship and survival in the Canadian wilderness. Based on a true life story
Edouard was a privileged young boy living a protected and prosperous life in 1850s England when his world was suddenly turned upside down one fateful day.
He was thrust into a life of danger, terror and adventure when he was kidnapped aboard a ship and forced to sail to the New World (Quebec, Canada) at the age of seven. This is his story of survival on a ship at sea, finding his true self on the streets of Quebec and learning tolerance and acceptance among the natives in the forest. After being given to the medicine woman he learned the ways of gathering herbs and healing.
This is the story of my great, great grandfather. I now own a business (Tego Tea) using the herbs for health and healing that he learned as a boy. These remarkable teas are changing people's lives.
A.H. Verge is a natural-born storyteller. His favorite subjects are based on true events and how they affect those involved in the occurrences happening around them. Like the histories of his native, Abenaki ancestors, he brings you into the center of the story and he talks from his personal point of view at the age when it occurred.
