Descrizione prodotto


The first novel in the Jewel Legacy trilogy.

The late 1950s defined America for a post-war generation. Tract housing was devouring farmland, and rock and roll music was dividing the generations. Disneyland, transistor radios, automobiles and televisions were molding a new American culture, and highways like Route 66 were transforming the country into a nomadic society.
Jewel’s family was moving too, from one military duty station in the Azores to another on the shores of Waikiki, but they had to traverse the American continent to get there. Loaded into the family’s new Chevy Nomad station wagon, they began their three-week journey across an undulating tapestry of quirky relatives, motor hotels, blossoming gas stations, chrome-plated diners, national parks, and the turbulent emotions swirling around their own family.
Writing in his Big Chief tablet, seven-year old Jewel documented their coast-to-coast trip, not realizing that he would change faster than the landscape rushing past his window. Along the way, he’d discover a father with god-like strength and authority, who spared no rods and captained the Nomad like a disciplined soldier, and a porcelain mother who threatened to shatter at the slightest bump in the road. Older brother Charlie was a compass to be admired and revered, but never followed. Deep in the soil of his family, Jewel found his roots and learned to appreciate cousins in ways he’d never imagined. He'd also forge his own rules about life and love and family values at a time when it mattered most.
Now, introspective about the journey, Jewel reflects on the outcome of the events and people who were part of the AMERICAN NOMAD. Where did the road ultimately lead everyone? Did they survive into the future with him, or did fires of their own making consume them, and has time given Jewel greater understanding about the events of that single month in the summer of 1957?
AMERICAN NOMAD has delightful humor, haunting images of sadness and powerful expressions of love.


Frank Pickard has published five novels, a textbook and completed two other works of fiction. His most recent novel is LUNA. Currently, he's working on THE HAOLE, the third installment in the 'AMERICAN NOMAD' memoir series. Future publications include THE SURROGATE, a second horror novel titled VERITAS, and a lovely story of five elderly women who return to college titled, THE OMEGA SISTERS. Frank Pickard lives in Tucson Arizona with his wife and greyhound/shepherd mix.

HASH(0x9995e2ac) su 5 stelle ! Great !! 6 settembre 2014

Worth the read. Although I didn't grow up in the 50s, it still brought back memories of us going all over the eastern USA and southern US growing up. My dad was in the Army, but that was before I was born. For some reason, we could never stay in one place. Always moving from here to there, and when we weren't in the middle of a move, we were going on great family Vaca...In a big ole station wagon.

Anyhow, this Author had a way of writing that drew you right in, and made you feel like you were sitting beside him as the miles flew behind you. Will be looking for more of his work!

Though a 1957 Chevy Nomad station wagon is the vehicle transporting the family, the real nomad of this book is Jewel, a wryly observant young boy who begins his journey into manhood on their cross-country trip. At times hilarious and heart wrenching, 'American Nomad' is a complex and compelling tale of familial relationships, how they shape and ultimately define us. A must-read!

The references in the book to both sibling relationships and the military life style brought back a lot of memories for me. I loved the passages stated from the child's perspective. Funny ... but so true! The military life is ever changing but those of us who lived in it can relate to the descriptions. Looking forward to reading the next one! :-)

I loved this book. Brought back many of my own memories of traveling with my family. I was touched with the honesty of Frank Pickard's approach to his story of his life with his family. I'm am looking forward to reading his next book.

I was not aware of this author until a blurb about this book popped up on my Kindle. Intrigued by the preview, I decided to order it. As someone who traveled all over the country with my grandparents in the late '50s, early '60s, I was curious about the author's take on his roadtrip. While the book was good, it was a little short on discussing the trip and the scenery and more about his dysfunctional family. Of course, I realize those were stories that needed to be told, but I came away feeling like he really didn't enjoy the trip as much as he could have, given the circumstances. I have ordered the follow-up book, "Island Jewel" and will see how that reads.
