Two young men battle corruption, the forces of nature, and their own weaknesses (including the issue of their love for the same woman) in the deepest part of the Brazilian jungle: In 1908 two Irish American brothers leave their jobs on the docks of Hoboken, NJ, to make their fortune tapping rubber trees in the South American rain forest. They expect to encounter floods, snakes, malaria, extreme hunger, and unfriendly competitors, but nothing prepares them for the psychological hurdles that will befall them. Before We Died, the first in the three-book Rivers series, is a literary adventure novel set against the background of the South American rubber boom, a fascinating but little known historical moment. 1.

There is Miguel Santana, a young Spaniard abandoned by his comrades; his Pima son Vitorio; Jacova, a woman whose indomitable spirit tamed a mighty Apache warrior; and the ´´man of three bloods´´. The river belongs to all, and to none. On the banks of the Gila, their lives all come together - in love and in war - as the great river carries them forward toward an uncertain future. 1.

Philadelphia Gordon is an artist, a riverboat skipper, a beautiful and independent woman. Orphaned by a shipwreck, Philadelphia grows up on the banks of her beloved Murray River, seemingly destined for a conventional life.

River Prescott has everything she´s ever wanted - except perhaps a man. The unconventional ranch owning artist is very certain she doesn´t want a husband. But sometimes she can´t help wishing for a lover; especially after her new neighbor trespasses and she gets a full frontal view of his assets. Edge Grayson moves onto the rundown spread he´s inherited, expecting to stay aloof from nearby town business.
