The Castaway Hat is an amusing intrigue of lure and lucre, spanning two generations. A mystery of a straw hat with a faded red ribbon washed among the rocks. The finder, Edgar, by co-incidence, not that he knows it, met the owner the previous night at a book launch. Daphne and the hat were parted when a launch capsized – she swimming to an island off New Zealand’s Coromandel Peninsula, only to discover an old gold mining tunnel, a recently worked old mining tunnel. The author, Erica, locates the earlier, but not original diggers of that tunnel. An adventure that spans oceans and time to settle in the tiny carless town of Murren, Switzerland, during World War II.

Clark James has had a diverse working life coupled with art and writing, including the six-volume historical novel Wind from the West and more recently the four-volume apocalyptic series beginning with Snowgirls. The novel The Castaway Hat fits in between the two series along with Earth’s Revenge and The Consequence, two environmental/political novels. Clark is widely travelled and places characters into settings he is familiar with. Married twice, he has several adult children, step-children and grandchildren. He also has been involved in various organisations: scouting, ratepayers, performing arts, painting and writing groups.
