About The Book
The interesting premise of this novel is that the hero, Elias, a descendant of Lenape Indian chieftains, has lived his life in isolation on a small island called Turnaway, within touching distance of his native people’s land — which just happens to be New York City. In the company of Ben, a cynical narrator, this noble savage ventures into the city, his inability to cope with modern American ways recalling Crocodile Dundee. Unlike Dundee, however, Elias is at home here in a deeper way than the Manhattanites. Elias cannot walk the concrete streets without recalling the lie of the land before the famous skyline was dreamed of. Browner has done careful homework on the historical aspects of this intriguing novel.
