Description - The Navigator Of New York by Wayne Johnston

Wayne Johnston's last novel, THE COLONY OF UNREQUITED DREAMS, was acclaimed all round the world and established him as a major literary figure. Johnston's new novel will delight everyone who loved that book and bring him thousands of new readers. At the centre of THE NAVIGATOR OF NEW YORK is the rivalry between Robert Peary and Frederick Cook to be the first American to reach the North Pole. Its protagonist, however, is Devlin Stead, a young man from St John's, Newfoundland. Devlin's mother dies when he is only five, in mysterious circumstances, and he endures a lonely childhood before discovering the truth about his parentage. That discovery transforms his life- he finds his true father and embarks on a journey of unbelievable risk. His adventure brings him celebrity, acclaim from New York society, real love, and finally the truth about the bitter feud between two strange, driven men.
