“William” is the action packed sequel of “The Saga of the Brothers Mountain.” The fictional tale begins in 1844 as it follows the Mountain family and their journey through the untamed Territory of Wisconsin and into the newly formed State of Minnesota.
The family, originally from the small farming village of Killeagh, in County Cork Ireland, is forced to go into hiding in order to escape the wrath of English landlord Charles Webb. Webb sent mercenaries to America to find and kill the Mountain family as retribution for destroying his compound back in Ireland. In an unexpected turn of events, the Mountain family survived the attack and killed the mercenaries. With the fear of continual reprisal from Webb, the family moved and secretly settled in the newly formed town of Hudson, in Wisconsin Territory.
The Mountain family quickly learned that lawlessness was a prevalent way of life in their new country, America. Instead of finding a peaceful existence, they found nothing but turmoil and potential death.
