Overview

     In the American Indian belief, it is said that we never really know who we are until we find our totem, and once we do, then everything falls into place, even in the midst of chaos. Lion Eyes is the exciting true story of Jan Milburn, who came face-to-face with his totem—and was transformed. As a love-deprived young child, he got lost in a snowstorm in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, and a huge mountain lion led him safely home . . . setting him on a course for a miraculous life. Acclaimed best-selling author Victor Villaseñor gives voice to Jan’s thrilling tale, full of danger, clashes between light and darkness, romance, and healing miracles.
     Against the backdrop of the ’60s—a time of love and war, a time of turmoil and social upheaval, a time of young people’s exuberant exploration while the establishment tried to hold on to the past—Jan Milburn chose an unusual calling . . . becoming the youngest minister ever ordained by the state of California.
     Jan’s spiritual path, incredibly, led him from San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury District of the ’60s to Mexico, and into the darkness of the drug world. Hunted by a notorious assassin, he stared down death and encountered the very depths of depravity and violence—but ultimately awakened to his magical Spirit Guides and the Kingdom of God within each of us that transcends religion and “of-the-body” limitations.
     It was at this time that Mireya, a beautiful young Indian girl, saw in Jan the noble heart of a lion and the vision of an eagle. Nothing could get in the way of her love and admiration for this man. It was written in the stars, she said. Eventually, Mireya and Jan married and were instrumental in helping to return more than two million acres of stolen land to the Tarahumara Indians of Chihuahua, Mexico. 
     Lion Eyes is a mystical, heartfelt, soul-inspiring love story of timeless relevance. It shows us that our global future lies not just in our politics and religious beliefs, but also in our unwavering love and our forgotten native wisdom that once we find our totem, everything falls into place, even amidst chaos . . . illustrated by one man’s incredible life, which can become the norm for all of humanity!

    Highly recommended!

    I have loved this author's previous books, mostly about his own familia, and I have to admit I was doubtful that this one could be as wonderful. Happily, I was very wrong! Very quickly, the amazing story drew me in, thrilled and entertained and (mostly) uplifted me. I have actually met Jan Milburn and his wife, Mireya, whose story this is, and that helped quiet my doubing mind and remind me that the story is true, no matter how fantastic it also is! I plan to buy copies for several friends and relatives. The friend who got my copy read a little bit and already can't wait to pass it on to her teenage son. Really something special...hope you enjoy!!

    Worst Book Ever!

    This is absolutely the worst book I have ever bought! I wish there was some way I could return it and get my money back. Not what I expected from Villasenor. It's Bigfish meets Carlos Castaneda. What a waste of writing skills!
