The Price of Glory
, October 25, 2023 ) Denver, CO and Topeka, KS – Award-winning author Patrick Shannon’s new novel, The Price of Glory, brings to vivid life a neglected chapter in the
of the land that would become America, in a time of violent struggle for nothing less than control of the New World. This riveting new historical fiction has been published by Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company.
To the east were the English; to the west the Spanish. The center of the American continent was up for grabs, and the French were making their move. The Price of Glory—based heavily on historical fact—is the gripping saga of Robert La Salle, the French explorer who made the first attempt to claim and develop that mid-continent wilderness.
The story spans La Salle’s defining years, from 1673 to 1687, when he conceived, and then put into motion, his scheme to build a major colony on the Gulf of Mexico and then to plant settlements along the Mississippi. It is a tale of obsession, political chicanery in the court of Louis XIV, perilous voyages across oceans and the Great Lakes, treks through the wilderness that called on everything a mind and body could give—and then demanded more—encounters with Indians who tortured and cannibalized their victims, a savage battle against the ferocious Iroquois Confederacy, and the fatal consequences stemming from the primitive state of navigation in the 17th century…and why the scheme failed so tragically. It’s the story of how the lost lives of hundreds of people, whose trust La Salle betrayed, was too high a price to pay for his glory.
