Noah's Raven chronicles the rise of Trump-like billionaire presidential hopeful Billy Joe Northrop and good ol' boy political strategist Bull O'Connor, who plan to take the White House by storm through deceit and backroom deals. Dating Northrop's daughter Harriet, Atlanta reporter Fred Scully stumbles upon the story of a lifetime -- one that he may not live to tell. On the run, Scully finds himself drawn to British Columbia's Chilcotin region and First Nations elder Noah Hanlon, who may hold the key to the future of two nations.
Hanlon's attempts to preserve his ancient ancestral homeland are challenged by the outside interests personified in Northrop and O'Connor. These opportunists threaten to conquer the pristine wilderness of the Chilcotin with a development that will irrevocably scar the land. The region may change forever -- as will history -- if Hanlon can't overcome personal tragedy to fight for the land he loves.
This political thriller by retired Vancouver criminal lawyer Bruce Fraser imagines the intersection of the American electoral process with First Nations' land rights while exploring the mysteries of the vast canvas of the rugged Chilcotin region.
