Nimissuts: Thunderspirit of the Iroquois

By A. A. G. Whitehead

Two brothers are sired by one nobleman and two mothers – a deadly rivalry is born.

Edmund, son of William Fitzhugh, Lord of Teesdale, is born at Castle Teesdale early one grey morning.

He is two months younger than the old lord’s bastard son Nathaniel, born to the young daughter of one of his tenant farmers.

But Nate is the gifted one, outshining his brother in every way. And Edmund is tainted with an evil streak that will see him plot the death of his own father. And orchestrate a distressing end to Nate’s mother in gaol.

For Edmund there is only hatred. For Nate there is only revenge.

And so begins a battle between the two that not even an ocean can separate.

But as Nate tries to start his life again in the New World, with the native peoples and colonists alike, he finds he possesses powers even he did not dream of.

The Iriqouis see him as one pre-figured in myths – a Thunder Being – to deliver them from blood-thirsty rival tribes. The European traders see him as a natural leader and pioneer.

But Edmund is everywhere his shadow, spreading his evil. Can Nate escape the fate that his new native friends believe awaits him? What new evil can Edmund devise that will unleash Nate’s new-found powers in devastating fashion? Will Nate finally secure the revenge that is haunting his every moment?

Mixing historical fact with tribal folklore, AAG Whitehead’s Nimisutts is an intriguing romance and adventure with a clash of cultures as its backdrop. If you enjoyed films like The New World and The Mission, this is a book for you.

Andy Whitehead was born in the West Riding of Yorkshire and originally trained in engineering, then spent many years in the fire service. He has written several novels, largely on historical themes, including the Pals Warseries and Passchendaele Calling, all of which are set during Word War I.
