Summary: The Americans Are Coming, the first novel of The Brennen Siding Trilogy, introduces teenagers Dryfly Ramsey and Shadrack Nash, poor and ignorant in the worlds terms, but rich in the lore of the woods and the magical Miramichi River. Among the Brennen Siding folk who help them grow up (sometimes none too gently) are Shirley Ramsey, the homely, destitute mother of Dry and his 10 brothers and sisters; Nutbeam, a floppy-eared hermit who falls in love with Shirley; the American salmon anglers buying up the riverfront just as fast as they can; and the local men who guide them in their pursuit of the legendary Atlantic salmon.
