Author Joan Donaldson-Yarmeyabout this book: Most Canadians think that Canada's history is boring. I disagree and I am hoping to prove it by writing what I call my Canadian Historical Series for young adults. The first novel, "West to the Bay", is set in 1750 and takes a fifteen year old boy from his home on the Orkney Islands, Scotland, across the Atlantic Ocean to work at a Hudson's Bay Company's post on Hudson's Bay, Canada.

The cover shows a type of boat used to cross the oceans in the 1700's. Sailing at that time relied on the wind and many boats were lost to storms.

I had to do a lot of reading of non-fiction books in order to get the setting and the history correct for this story.

The next book in the series titled "West to Grand Portage" will be out in December as an ebook and as a print book. Both historical books, plus my other novels, are published through Books We Love Ltd.
