A series of successful academic text projects between 2004 and 2013 completed for US-based Gale Publishing and Lerner Media (books garnering four successive American Library Association ‘Science Text of the Year’ awards), provide the springboard for three ambitious Canadian works Bryan and co-author Andrew Traficante (Sault Ste.

Brass CrossIron Hand

The year is 1923. The old house at 183 Spring Street has been flattened and cleared away. Simple men have but a few immediate ambitions, and William Roach is no exception. With several friends and a likely supply of Prohibition booze, Roach begins digging up the empty lot to create a basement and foundation for his new house. Suddenly, the shovels and picks slam into metal several feet below the surface. Clearing away dust and dirt, the men discover two surprising objects. One is a 5-inch crucifix, made of brass and warped to one side. The other is a life-size cast of a human hand, made of the simplest and most solid iron. They have rested deep in the ground under the city of Sault Ste Marie, Ontario for what must have been many decades.
