About the Book

Nations Apart

For seven days in Argentina, historic events and past lives seek resolution and redemption.

On August 10th, 1965, while the Canadian church and state are well into executing cultural genocide, a priest and a policeman pry three aboriginal children from the care of their mother and father in the wilderness of British Columbia and place them in an abusive residential school. In less than a year, one sister disappears.

On August 15th, 1972, the military government of Argentina is fully committed to waging a brutal Dirty War against its adversaries and a daring mass prison escape on the Patagonian coast nets ten political prisoners freedom. Nineteen others are captured, taken to a military base and massacred. One last prisoner is nowhere to be found.

On December 18th, 2001, Leonard Frank, a wildfire specialist for the British Columbia government, is sent to Buenos Aires on a mission of international cooperation just as the Argentine national economy disintegrates and the government is on the edge of collapse. There are mass demonstrations, widespread looting and gunshots in the night. Within twenty-four hours of arriving, Leonard drops out of sight.

Nations Apart is a compelling and groundbreaking novel that combines the shocking reality of politics with a fictional gripping story.

Stephen McGeegan, aka Stephen Quigley, the newly minted author of “Nations Apart” has lived a life as varied and interesting as many of his characters.  Born in Los Angeles in 1952, Stephen went on the road at the age of 19, traveling across the United States and extensively throughout Europe. In a forty year career span, he has taught soldiers for the US Army in Germany, worked construction in California, and settled in the far north of British Columbia where his career path has led him to surveying, log building, self-publishing, bartending, gold mining and twenty-five years of forest fire management.  He and his Argentinean wife, Silvana, own and operate a lodge and spend their time between homes in southern Argentina, where the Andes meet Patagonia, and in northern British Columbia, where the Pacific watershed meets the Arctic.  They have four children between them and three grandchildren.
