Powerful and inspiring. See a Problem? We’d love your help. Clair Robson served two years in the Peace Corps, then worked as a teacher and librarian in Brooklyn, NY, Japan, South Carolina, and Arizona before moving to Maryland. After writing novels about the Comanches, the Cherokees, Seminoles and Japanese, she decided to write about her own people: Anglicans. Библиографические данные. Clair Robson has written an epic novel. Ghost Warrior evokes the life of a Native American woman who at last, and rightfully so, takes her place in history. The characters are memorably drawn, the narrative resonates with the truth of time and place, and Lozen, warrior and shaman, leads her people in the valiant fight against injustice late into the night. -Matt Braun, Spur Award-winning author of The Kincaids and winner of the Cowboy Spirit Award

Lucia St. They acknowledge her right to become the daimyō of her lands (which were in current day Kumamoto) after her husband died. I didn't intend to be a novelist, but life is what happens when you're making other plans  . Later powerful female figures were more restricted in terms of actual fighting, by Confucianist philosophies imported from China, which regarded woman as inferior beings.

At last the boatload of hopeless and hopefuls arrives in Mary's Landa half-wild, haphazardly planted settlement. On hand to greet the Brents are the worn, gentlemanly governor Calvert and his sheriff, irreverent Robert Vaughan, who will become Margaret's fast friend.

Clair Robson's "can't put down books" - and as soon as I've finished I want more - her facts are always correct and she has a wonderful feel for putting them into words that create pictures in the soul. com User, January 30, 1998. I am an avid reader of historical biographies both fictional and non fictional. I found this book to be a treasure trove of information and details of live in a very young America. If you want to get a feel for the type of people that started this country this is a must read book. Clair Robson was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and raised in South Florida. She has been a Peace Corps volunteer in Venezuela and a teacher in a disadvantaged neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. She has also lived in Japan, South Carolina, and Arizona

Lucia St. She has also lived in Japan, South Carolina, and Arizona. After earning her master's degree in Library Science at Florida State University, Ms. Robson worked as a public librarian in Annapolis, Maryland. She is the author of the historical novels Mary's Land, Light a Distant Fire, Ride the Wind, The Tokaido Road, and Walk in My Soul. Today Lucia St. Clair Robson lives near Annapolis.

The San Francisco Chronicle has praised Lucia St. Clair Robson for her re-creations of "colorful people, stunning landscapes, and arcane customs." And Cosmopolitan proclaimed that in a Robson novel "what is to us an unfamiliar world comes absolutely alive." Now the author of Ride the Wind and Walk in My Soul has crafted an enthralling tale of early Maryland. A truly American novel of dreams and courage, Mary's Land tells the story of two women who build a new life in a verdant country that is strange and threatening, yet gloriously sweet with promise.As the ship Charity sails from England across the Atlantic, two vastly different yet equally courageous women make the perilous journey. Strong-willed, upper class Margaret Brent has decided to make better use of her dowry than to hand it over to some doddering squire. She has invested in Lord Baltimore's Maryland plantation, because the new colony is her single chance for a home of her own, and the right to practice openly her Catholic religion.Anicah is a teenage guttersnipe who lives by her wits and quick tongue. kidnapped off the streets of Bristol, she is transported to the New World and indentured to Samuel Smythe, a local tavern keeper. Used to the world's indifference, she never envisioned a life of food, shelter, and only Goodwife Smythe's ill-temper with which to contend. And then there is Martin, who opens her heart to a woman's love. For Margaret and Anicah, the future is different from any they might have imagined. One will achieve the American dream, the other will keep moving in search of freedom. But both bring to glorious life the world of Mary's Land, a novel of such meticulous historical accuracy and detail that it could only have been written by the acclaimed Lucia St. Clair Robson.

Can’t give this 5 stars even though the first chapters totally grabbed me. Great start that ground down to tedium of politics and trivia. Some characters were so interesting but not developed. Some not at all interesting were over done. Almost gave up when I got 50% and it finally picked up on the original characters I first liked so much and was so interested in. Still several story lines dropped or not explained while others were tedious. It was a good book but I think author was not clear on who and what the story was supposed to be about. Just my opinion. A clearer focus and tighter editorial support might have helped.
This is the 2nd book I've read by Lucia St. Clair Robson who is apparently an excellent historical novalist. My ancestors were one of the first arrivals in Maryland from England so I was very I interested to read this story. Her rendition of colloquial language is amazing. Sometimes I had to read a sentence several times to understand what the character was saying and often I had to guess at the meaning of unfamiliar words. As with previous novels, many of the characters in this book actually lived and it was fascinating reading about them on Wikipedia after completing the book. The story goes quickly and the book was difficult to put down. Now I'm on my 3rd book by this author. What a treat.
Funny duck
Lucia Robson is among the gentry of historical fiction. Her skill in intertwining historical and fictional characters with their environment is a delight to the reader. The way she weaves the fictional Anicah with historical pioneers in Maryland's turbulent early colonial days is masterful. Anyone with an interest in early American history will find this work a must read.
I am from St. Mary's county and found this book many years ago. I wanted to read it again after taking some friends to see St. Mary's City. My mother lived on Snow Hill Farm with her family for a time when she was a child so I enjoyed the story set in that location. It's definitely worth the time to read it.
This book, about the founding of Maryland by a Catholic community makes you feel like you are right there in the thick of things. This novel is based on real people, real events and then the author fills out the story with well researched period details.

The story moves quickly and the characters are those that you end up caring deeply about.
This book gives the history of the foundling of the State of Maryland very interesting
