Upstate New York in the mid-19th century is a cauldron bubbling with the lure of fast fortunes, religious zealotry, and battles for civil liberties. This fervor centers on the Erie Canal, which successfully supports scores of villages brimming with opportunity. One such village, Fayetteville, shapes the lives of two future American leaders.

High Bridge blends history and fiction to tell the stories of two American icons, one the only child of freethinking abolitionists, and the other a prankster lad who grew up in the large family of an austere reverend. They were Matilda Joslyn Gage and Grover Cleveland. Despite their different childhoods and worldviews, they form an unlikely friendship in this compelling novel. Can they combine their skills to solve a mystery and vindicate a Black man accused of murder?

 

 

 

 

 

About Michael Miller

As a life-long author, writing has been part of my life since. . . well, I cannot remember when it wasn’t.

As a child, I dealt with bullies, braggarts, and blowhards. My “solutions” were to keep my head down and my eye on the ball. I find bullies still abound, appearing in most any situation and at any stage of life. My search for a successful strategy to contend with these tormentors continues to be a work in progress.

My greatest senses of accomplishment have come from being a father and teacher. These roles are not far from one other. Helping people learn how to piece things together, master tasks, and set on their own paths of adventure and discovery is immensely rewarding. Since retiring, I have devoted my attention to our local Learning in Retirement program. I believe you can teach old dogs new tricks. Writing gives me an opportunity to explore new worlds, challenge myself, and confront vexing questions and situations. I

Please, join me, intriguing historical figures, and compelling creatures of a fantasy world on our quests for civility and equity.
