Joseph Shepherd is an unassuming genius whose medical and scientific prowess is matched only by his compassion and understanding of those he serves. He has the courage to confront powerful people, and the compassion to serve the poorest London beggars. Yet Shepherd is misunderstood and ends up in frequent confrontations with those who would plan to kill him. His final adventure gives pause to the reader to really examine who this man is.
Shepherd meets his travel partner Luke Greene after a rescue at sea. They go on to experience a harrowing sea battle with pirates, and later help launch the Mayflower, just one of the ways they influence history wherever they travel. Their adventure takes them to England and America, as they meet and influence the towering figures of the 17th century. Travel with Shepherd and Greene on this fascinating journey as they meet luminaries like Galileo, William Harvey, Oliver Cromwell, Francis Bacon, European monarchs, and even a few killers along the way.
Joseph Shepherd is John Jung’s third book and his first novel. This book has been 30 years in the making since the first idea of Joseph Shepherd formed in John’s thinking. John hopes that you share his love for Shepherd, and that you will want to follow future journeys of this adventurous traveler.
