Early reviews for the book have been five-star. Caudle says, “This is more than a western and more than a contemporary novel; it is stunning in all ways. The novel is action-packed and weaves through the plot seamlessly. It is one of those that is hard to put down.”
John Duncan, another reader, says, “What a great read. I found myself hooked from the very first chapter. The author does a great job of taking the reader to diverse places and times, all the while unfolding a unique story that is at the same moment is mysterious and heartwarming. I’m buying extra copies to share with friends and family.”
ABOUT THE BOOK
A New Beginning: The Smoke of One Thousand Lodge Fires
Our Heroine, Topusana (Prairie Flower), awakens in a hidden cavern in the Texas Hill Country after having survived an attack by the Texas Rangers, which brutally takes the life of her only daughter. During that battle, Topusana is rescued from captivity by her husband Tabbananica (Voice of the Sun). The year is 1844. The Native American couple, along with a handful of survivors, escapes not into hiding, or secret land, but into the “Dream Time.” Topusana, after seemingly sleeping in the hidden cavern for only a few days, awakens in 2020 to a world she has never seen or known. Her life goal and purpose is establishing a homeland for her surviving tribe. In 2020 Topusana will face the same enemy, the United States Government, that nearly brought about the demise of her people in 1844. A beautiful story of survival and triumph unfolds as Topusana (Sana) adapts to the incredible obstacles she has awakened. She moves from the stone-age into the modern world over a few short months. With the help of a handful of characters whose lives are filled with integrity, grace, and kindness, a new world and time transcend.
Narratives of actual events and battles are intertwined throughout the book. The historical record will transport readers into the fascinating history and heartbreaking destruction of the Comanche Nation in Texas.
