“The Feather Bed”: tells the extraordinary story of the ordinary Tomkins family. “The Feather Bed” is the creation of published author, Durrone Schuler, student of drama, English, history, and business, assistant pastor at Calvary Chapel in Snowflake, Arizona, and descendant of the real-life Tomkins family.

“The Feather Bed is historical fiction, woven with thread made from 100 percent pure historical fact.” --Durrone Schuler

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Durrone Schuler’s new book brings to life the real pioneering adventures of the Tomkins family.

In the winter of 1846 AD, 238 men, women, and children boarded The Brooklyn, a 125 foot sailing vessel bound for then-obscure California. It became a voyage nearly forgotten by history. This is the personal story of one family that made that voyage with a treasured heirloom, a feather bed.

“Just baggage,” one might say, but such baggage, if it could speak, would tell many a tale of adventure, intrigue, discovery, and courage. Join the Tomkins family aboard a ship as it leaves the New York Harbor to brave more than six long months on the high seas. Relive this treacherous adventure with them all the way around the Horn to California. This is the true story of what happened on that voyage.
