A.S Bond is the pen name of Alexandra Pratt, an internationally acclaimed travel writer and journalist. As the author of seven books, AS’s own adventures have taken her around the world, from the cloud forests of Central America to D.C.’s corridors of power.
When writing Patriot, A.S. Bond drew on her experience of leading an award-winning canoe expedition in Labrador, later the subject of ‘Lost Lands, Forgotten Stories; A Woman’s Journey to the Heart of Labrador’ published byEye Books (UK) and HarperCollins – http://www.harpercollins.ca/authors/60028093/Pratt_Alexandra/index.aspx.
Praise for AS Bond’s earlier books (written as Alexandra Pratt):
“I have known a few wonderful-crazy, damn-fool writers who would risk their lives for a great adventure story, but I have met only two – both husky, well-experienced outdoorsmen – who would have paddled a canoe into the Labrador wilds. And one of them is dead. Alexandra Pratt is so reckless she scares me and so entrancing that I could not put her book down.” – Ken McGoogan, author of Fatal Passage
“Lyrical and adventurous” – Conde Nast Traveller
“The writing is stunning.” – Canoeist Magazine
“The climax is pure adventure.” – Spirit of Canada Magazine
