In May of 1986, Drew Jackson reflects on the steps-or, more likely, the missteps-that have brought him to this point in his life. He had it all: a successful international shipping company serving the offshore drilling and exploration industry, corporate jets, friendships with the rich and famous, a big house, and a trophy wife. But it's all about to end.
"High Tide" shows one family's resolve, stamina, and tenacity in developing one of America's most important industries. The story of this visionary generation will engage those who believe in courage, in living their dreams, and in self-determination-to look the unknown in the face and not flinch.
'Maxine Domino has written a richly textured, sweepingly panoramic novel that chronicles the heady growth of the oil industry in mid-twentieth century America through the story of one gifted ambitious man. His story is told with the warmth and wisdom of his rural Texas roots. After following my husband for years around the oil fields of southern Louisiana, Nigeria, and Singapore, I am impressed with the authenticity of the novel. Domino has mastered the use of the telling detail and natural dialogue. The story is memorable and the characters finely drawn, a satisfying reading experience." -Barbara Faye Munson, PhD
