Darien ist die Hauptstadt eines mächtigen Königreiches. Seit tausend Jahren regieren von hier aus die zwölf mächtigsten Familien das Land. Doch diese Ära neigt sich dem Ende entgegen, denn König Johannes ist schwach und ängstlich. Als das Militär einen Mordanschlag auf den König plant, um den Thron für einen starken Herrscher frei zu machen, ändert sich das Leben von fünf ungleichen Helden für immer: Ein Jäger, ein Krieger, ein Dieb, eine Magierin und ein Wesen aus einer längst vergangenen Zeit – sie alle führt ihr Weg aus den entferntesten Ecken des Reiches nach Darien, denn nur gemeinsam können sie ihre Welt vor dem Untergang bewahren...

David Morgan is an expatriate American who has lived and worked in Panama for many years. But when he loses his job with the Panama Canal Commission, his life begins to fall apart. Desperate to regain his place in the community, Morgan joins forces with a former employer, the powerful Panama Canal Commission executive Daniel Boyd. Boyd, too, has recently lost his job with the Commission and is anxious to take advantage of a rich source of gold located in the Darien wilderness of eastern Panama. Boyd needs an expendable partner, and Morgan is the perfect choice. As Morgan enters the Darien., Boyd's perfect plan begins to fall apart. Boyd's daughter, Susan, accidentally discovers her father's plan and races into the Darien to save her former lover, David Morgan. But Daniel Boyd is not Morgan's only problem. The Panamanian government and the United States Army are also interested in what an American citizen is doing alone in the Darien. Soon finding Boyd's god is the least of Morgan's problems as he and Susan struggle desperately to survive in the unforgiving Darien wilderness.

The Company of Scotland and its attempts to establish the colony of Caledonia on the inhospitable isthmus of Panama in the late seventeenth century is one of the most tragic moments of Scottish history. Devised by William Paterson, the stratagem was to create a major trading station between Europe and the East. It could have been a triumph, but inadequate preparation and organization ensured it was a catastrophe - of the 3000 settlers who set sail in 1688 and 1699, only a handful returned, the rest having succumbed to disease, and the enormous financial loss was a key factor in ensuring union with England in 1707. Based on archive research in the UK and Panama, as well as travelling to Darien itself, John McKendrick explores this fascinating and seminal moment in Scottish history and uncovers fascinating new information from New World archives about the role of the English and Spanish, and about the identities of the settlers themselves.

After the Black Hawk War of 1832, two small villages took root on the prairie southwest of Chicago. Settled in the 1830s and 1840s, Lace and Cass grew into the city of Darien, which was incorporated in 1969. The rich soil and timberland attracted hardy pioneers from the East and immigrants from Germany. They plowed, planted crops, and raised their families. Wood was cut for homes and barns, and cattle grazed in open fields. At "The Point" stood a general store, a blacksmith shop, a creamery, and Lace Hall. On his wife's family property in 1903, Congressman Martin Madden built a summer home called Castle Eden, a scaled-down version of the White House. Shortly after World War II, suburbia arrived. Picking flowers along the creek while walking through open fields of corn, hay, and wild daisies became a thing of the past as the foundations of homes and businesses began to dot the landscape. "Life at the Point" slowly changed, giving way to Darien, "A Nice Place to Live."

The Darien Journal of John Girardeau Legare Ricegrower

In 1877, John Girardeau Legare of Adams Run, South Carolina, arrived in Darien on the Georgia tidewater. Legare managed Darien-area rice plantations, first at Generals Island, then at Champneys. Nearby was Butler's Island, made famous by Fanny Kemble Butler in her antebellum Journal of a Residence on a Georgian Plantation. Legare also served as the clerk of the city of Darien during the first three decades of the twentieth century, maintaining detailed records of public business and documenting local commercial and civic affairs. Almost to the day of his death in 1932, Legare kept a journal containing his observations and commentary on the development of Darien as a center for timber exports and the gradual decline of the rice industry. South Carolina and Georgia led the world in rice production in the mid-nineteenth century, and Legare's detailed accounts of planting and management provide one of the outstanding contemporary sources for what was becoming a vanishing way of life in tidewater Georgia. Legare's journals are a microcosmic history of Darien and its environs during a time that was perhaps the most compelling in the town's history. The industrial development of Darien in the postbellum era was the essence of Henry Grady's vision of the progressive New South, a factor not lost on Legare. He reflects on the difficulties associated with rice planting; Darien's soaring, then plummeting, fortunes with yellow pine timber; prominent community members; and the development of local railroads. Legare records these developments against the larger backdrop of America, as his journal contains many observations on contemporary national events. Buddy Sullivan has placed the Journal in context with an introduction and comprehensive endnotes identifying the people and events referred to by Legare. There is also considerable African American history in the volume, as reflected both in Legare's writings and in the editor's introduction and supplementary notes.
