Jaime Troyano, a Canal collaborator with more than 25 years of experience, published the historical novel “Taming the Untamed: The Panama Canal“.
With an interesting narrative, Jaime tells the story of Jules Beckford, a young man from Barbados who embarks on the journey of his life: to come to work on the construction of the Canal and thus, achieve a better future for his family.
This is Troyano’s third book, and his first in the fiction genre. This love of writing began when, looking for curious facts to share with tourists visiting the Canal, he began to research the construction period.
From that research, he wrote his first two books: 100 Years of Panama Canal Curiosities and Realities and Myths and Legends of the Panama Canal. “It was not in my plans to write a novel, but I liked the experience, and due to the great acceptance of the public, I decided on the social theme, seen from the experience of the character,” says Jaime.
