Edward L. Pearson, a bachelor’s degree holder in fine arts from the California State University, a property custodian for California State Parks, as well as a prolific conversationalist due to his vast experiences in various other occupations that deal with people, has completed his new book “The American Dream”: a captivating account that expounds the significance of freedom and equality among the people, regardless of race and status in the society.
Author Pearson shows that although the nation of America was founded on sweat, blood, and tears, and is thought to be a nation of promise, it still hides a more undermining scheme that exudes subtle despotism: “Living up to his reputed shrewdness, George Washington devised a method of illegally evading the free slave law of Pennsylvania. Each time the state drafted a new antislavery ordinance, Washington sought a loophole to evade it. He had secret passageways constructed beneath the President’s house so that slaves could be ferried in and arrive at their workstations unseen. Keeping track of the date when each of the nine was brought into the state, he would have them taken and exchanged with other slaves at his Mount Vernon estate, in Virginia, where there were over three hundred. In this way, if any slave was discovered at the President’s house, none would have been in the state longer than six months. Had they been allowed to register, they could not have been lawfully taken out of state without their consent.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Edward L. Pearson’s tantalizing novel presents an astounding array of factual historical references that support his narrative’s significance to the society. The book portrays the citizens’ penchant for duplicity, which can reflect a person’s well-hidden disparity of character; it still exists, because the people are either unaware of it, or have simply resigned to the inevitable.
Readers who wish to experience this thought-provoking work can purchase “The American Dream” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, Kobo, or Barnes and Noble.
