Captain Rugged is a multimedia project collaboration between 2 Nigerian artists: Keziah Jones and Native Maqari. The book is a graphic novel and will come out with a special music card that will contain the url to download the tracks of Keziah Jones' CD album of the same name. The two artists have witnessed the most transformative stories happening within and around them in the city of Lagos so it was inevitable that they both attempted to put this into words and image and sound for an outside audience in order that they might also get an idea of the character of the city. After the oil boom years of the '70's, visually, Lagos resembled what can only be described as an unfinished African utopia; grand projects lay abandoned and subsequently taken over by the homeless, grand motorways that span the lagoons surrounding the islands of Lagos overrun by hastily constructed shanty towns on stilts. The city became both futuristic and of the past at the same time. Captain Rugged is set amongst the teeming masses that live in these in-between places. The only protagonist that Keziah and Native could conceive of who was surviving on his own terms in this type of environment was a superhero.This is due to the fact of the unending harshness of the daily grind of the inhabitants. But daily grind can also be experienced as transcendence, because at the end of every day Lagosians will sit down and ease away their troubles by recounting, to whomever will listen, the numerous surprising and amazing things they have seen over a beer and some music. For both artists the city of Lagos will never cease to amaze, therefore it was not surprising that a superhero called Captain Rugged would appear, because if they didn't invent him someone else would have.

The Rugged Terrain to the American Dream

Like the TV soap opera, “the young and the restless,” he was so young and so
restless that he could not fully grasp what the ship's captain, Dione Vestergaard,
had tried to tell him on the eve of his paying off from the ship in Baltimore.

Born and raised in the West African nation of Ghana, David, this eccentric young man travels to America in search of the American Dream, only to discover a complex labyrinth of harsh reality in which he had been caught. A thought-provoking novel that examines the friction from moral and legal perspectives, between bending the rules of a host country in response to the strict demands of personal survival instinct, and the unbending realities of the host country抯 contemporary legal tradition. In a lively recollection, the author articulates David抯 search for a piece of the American Dream with characteristic zest and humor. Culminating in a defiance of great odds into eventual triumph, David rises from the rubbles of extreme homelessness that almost cost him his life, and illustriously comes out unscathed to complete with high academic honors, a Ph.D. in business administration from an American university. A must read novel that inspires with an unusual insight into the resilience of the human spirit under the severest of adversities, reveals human frailties in the indulgence of prurient appetites, while simultaneously exposing the loopholes in the higher educational loan dispensation system.

The story of America’s westward migration is a powerful blend of fact and fable. Over the course of three decades, almost a million eager fortune-hunters, pioneers, and visionaries transformed the face of a continent—and displaced its previous inhabitants. The people who made the long and perilous journey over the Oregon and California trails drove this swift and astonishing change. In this magisterial volume, Will Bagley tells why and how this massive emigration began. While many previous authors have told parts of this story, Bagley has recast it in its entirety for modern readers. Drawing on research he conducted for the National Park Service’s Long Distance Trails Office, he has woven a wealth of primary sources—personal letters and journals, government documents, newspaper reports, and folk accounts—into a compelling narrative that reinterprets the first years of overland migration. Illustrated with photographs and historical maps, So Rugged and Mountainous is the first of a projected four-volume history, Overland West: The Story of the Oregon and California Trails. This sweeping series describes how the “Road across the Plains” transformed the American West and became an enduring part of its legacy. And by showing that overland emigration would not have been possible without the cooperation of Native peoples and tribes, it places American Indians at the center of trail history, not on its margins.

The author along with his wife and two young grandsons are stranded at his (almost bomb proof) hunting camp in Marion, Maine after a severe snow storm blocks the roads. Unknown to the fact that there has been a disaster and all are dead, the captain travels by snowshoes to investigate. Rather than join his neighbors in death he must get himself, his wife, and the two boys on a long and dangerous cruise. The spindrift spray slashed across the windows of the pilot house. The rugged boat built for such weather dove into the waves and up she rose higher and higher, then down to stop with a crash and shudder. Captain Kelley at the wheel watched the compass heading like a hawk keeping the vessel headed into the waves, was a must. If the boat rolled off course and got hit on the side by a wave it could be the end. The heavy ice coating aloft in the rigging would not allow a quick rise. His tired eyes peered again at the compass and then looked ahead into the darkness. How anxiously he awaited daylight and the sun to melt off the ice from the rigging. What was he doing out here on the ocean in the winter storm? The answer to that question of course is the following interesting sea story: The Escape from the Atomic Fallout The rugged sea captain with his wife and two young grandsons went on a visit to his Maine hunting camp in late November and are stranded by atomic bomb fallout. They must get from the frigid cold weather to the warmer climate further down south. The preparations and start in a boat must be made from Lubec, Maine to the east coast of North Carolina, near Cape Lookout Lighthouse.
