Jack McDermott, a native New Yorker and lifelong entrepreneur who loves his country life on a small farm in Pennsylvania, has completed his book “The Legend of Henry Pech”: a celebration of the life and invaluable friendship of a true pioneer.

Set in the mid-to late-1970s, “The Legend of Henry Pech” follows the start of a new life for a naïve young man named Jack. He leaves New York City and moves out to the remote back country of Oregon’s Cascade Mountains. He meets a man, Henry Pech, who mentors him in the ways of the country living. Little known to the world, Henry is a modern-day mountain man and lives a simple, yet refined lifestyle. Even though Jack does not realize it at the time, Henry leaves a permanent mark on Jack’s life and memories. To any outsider, he is only a simple man, but to a fortunate few, Henry becomes a legend.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jack McDermott’s debut novel is an affectionate homage to an irreplaceable friend and mentor.

Readers who wish to experience this engrossing work can purchase “The Legend of Henry Pech” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
