Gertrude and Toby's Friday Adventure

Wins IPPY Silver Medal Award—Best Children's Illustrated E-book

​​Jed is a historical novel by Jim Wetton set in the United States during the mid-1800s. The story takes place against the backdrops of emigration to the Western frontier, slavery, and the Civil War. Oh, and there's blood, disease, more than a few deaths, some romantic interludes, and ultimately redemption for some who survive to the end. Jed was released during January 2016.​​
