Just got yer book right here, Amos, and I am shocked to see that it's openly admitted to be a work of fiction! That means it's just a buncha lies! I expected better from you, mister.

Still, I paid for it, so I guess I'll read it. Lies, after all, can sometimes be worth readin' just for the entertainment value, right?

Hmm. The dedications... Who are these people? And how come I am not on the list of them you are profusely thankin' for providin' support and inspiration?

Oh, I get it. You left me off coz of it bein' a buncha lies, right? Didn't want to embarrass me by association, right? Okay, then.

Hmmm. Well, here we go...Chapter 1.

Reviewer Deborah Jensen has kindly posted the first review:

Once you start to read A.H. Jessup's "Beyond the Cascade" do not make any other plans because you will not be able to put it down until the very last page. This is a major journey in the Indiana Jones genre but with so many other layers of knowledge and education. The visual images are spectacular and yet familiar. You will be scratching your knuckles on walls of rock at the same time you are learning entirely new concepts of both thought and language. This is a must addition for your library.

Sweet-oh!!! Makes my heart skip a beat, in sooth!

She's wrong about only one thing. I have managed to put the book down several times to...

eat

go to the washroom

sleep

mow the lawn

feed the birds

take a shower

etc.

However, she's definitely on the right track. ;-)

Hmm. Well, there's a brief report today in the Manitoulin Expositor, a small newspaper that is based in Little Current, not far from Blind River. Their Arts page reports that Shane McBride will shortly complete a memoir entitled "Beyond Drunk and Disorderly". It's scheduled to be published sometime next Spring, and Shane is presently soliciting funds in the form of a grant (plus private donations) to assist in that endeavour and generate some useful pre-publication hype.

Should make for quite a read, eh?

Not just that, Ebbie. Also...facedown in the alleyway, on yer knees in fronta the john, swimming upward from a rapidly sinking snowmobile that just went through thin ice, from the back of a police cruiser, lying on a filthy and sheetless mattress in a strange room you don't remember next to the ugliest woman(?) you've ever seen or even imagined, nekkid and totally lost in the woods amongst 25 million ravenous mosquitoes, barreling down the highway half-nekkid in a "borrowed" beer truck with the cops hot in pursuit...

Etc.

But, yes, I think Shane is writing his book while in the Joint. That will help generate interest and public sympathy, a la Hurricane Carter, Eldridge Cleaver, Leonard Peltier, Nelson Mandela, etc. This is how Shane sees it. He is a societal martyr, condemned to an unjust fate by organized tyrrany and politically motivated profiling.

Well, I applaud his efforts, but judging from his previous exercises in literacy on this Forum, he has miles to go before he sleeps.

Here is the link on customer reviews if you have read the book and care to write one. These reviews on Amazon are the little gold stars the author collects as his reward.

Little Hawk, I am waiting for Chongo's, as he seems to have bought his copy fair and square and is thus entitled.

Yes, I expect he will. He seems to be enjoying the book, says Suzannah reminds him a lot of his girlfriend, Renata (the one he can't marry till the laws are changed), because they're both so feisty, smart, and determined.

I'll get around to doing a review just as soon as I finish the book, probably in 3 or 4 days from now.

Beyond the Cascade has just received another five-star review at Amazon:

Not to be missed ...
By B A Rasmussen on June 30, 2013
Format: Paperback Amazon Verified Purchase

Confession: I almost didn't buy this book. The synopsis, which spoke of discoveries of the human spirit, made it sound a bit much for my overtaxed mind, which begged at that moment for entertainment of a banal and obvious variety. Perhaps I should just watch a few episodes of mind-numbing reality TV, I mused, rather than read a book that might challenge me. Something though, compelled me to open the teaser copy. By the time the first two paragraphs were read, I found myself unable to put it down until finished. In short order, the full version was purchased, and I began to devour it, long into the night - several nights, as a matter of fact.

Normally one who reads at a fair clip, I found myself encountering thoughts that begged to be re-read, their meanings distilled, absorbed and savored. It was difficult to concentrate on much else, until the book was finished, and this vortex I had been sucked into, spit me out the other side, shell-shocked and contemplative. Far from overtaxing me, the challenges presented by Beyond the Cascade allowed me think in ways I hadn't dared to in many years, and left me feeling uplifted. This is truly a book that everyone should read. I cannot recommend it enough.


I am all frissons, bouleversée. I expect sooner or later some less delighted readers will post less delighted reviews, but I am nopt complaining so far!

Beyond the Cascade has received several more very nice reviews. I was especially touched by George Coventry's remarks:

"Beyond the Cascade" is a simply marvellous book, a great adventure story, and a philosophical-spiritual journey that gives the reader a great deal to think about. Suzannah is a totally believable character, a woman of great strength and determination, an original thinker who is ever intent on extending her horizons and not afraid to take on great risks in doing so. Every location in the story from New York City to the interior of Africa is depicted in beautiful clarity, and every character, major or minor, is interesting, colorful, and convincing. You grow to love some of the people in this tale, and that's what keeps you reading above all else. Who will enjoy "Beyond the Cascade"? Anyone who likes a cracking good adventure tale, anyone who sees life as a spiritual journey, anyone who yearns to go beyond mere surface appearances and find a greater Truth...with a capital "T". This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. How do I sum it up? By saying: I wish I'd written it. - George Coventry
