Overview

Orenda: Feel the Magic

Deep in the forest there lives the world's greatest and most beautiful secret. Known only to a few initiates, the people of Orenda continue the ancient ways of magic from mankind's lost past. But even the wildest places are under threat, and this ancient tribe, who know nothing of the modern world, are discovered—and become a sensation.

Must their magic die, absorbed in the hectic modern world? Lawyer Mary Russell says no. Chief Charles Hay says no. Worldwalker Jim Hyam says no.

But the world says yes. And the world comes, in planes, in SUVs, in off-road vehicles, with cameras, forms to fill out, laws to follow and guns to make sure.

Who will win? Feel the magic.

    Whitley Strieber has written another gripping novel with twist a

    Whitley Strieber has written another gripping novel with twist and turns one would expect from a master of knowing what scares people and what gives them strength. The story builds from the conflicts and false faces of modern US government power players and slips back into a time when those falsities were unthinkable.

    It is a fun read which appeals to modern perspective but it is also filled with ancient symbolic meaning, stories that have remained with humanity because they speak to us on a level mere words cannot. The main character Mary comes to know a world more real and more powerful than the DC Beltway in which she used her skillful legal prowess.

    So little is known about the prehistoric American Indian tribes before the intrusion by Europeans. The forgotten tribes numbered in the hundreds, some only are barely known by their name. They left behind little to know what they believed or how they interacted. The same is true of the earliest peoples of the British isles who sometimes only left standing stones and a few ritual burials. Both they and the American Indian tribes are painted as primitive - but what does that mean?

    They had knowledge that we have lost, and were able to use more than their usual five senses.Being limited to only five got us ultimately to the 21st Century, where the fruits of our progress have become a stranglehold as much as a blessing in many cases. When Whitley writes of Orenda he is writing about the parts of all of us , each of us, that go back to a prehistoric way of being, the parts that yearn for a reconnection with each other and the earth, the parts that have known peaceful communal ways of living, which we still can see mere remnants of,here or there, in the most remote places on this earth.

    Whitley Strieber gives us a glimpse of what it may have been like, of what we have lost, and, what may perhaps be awakened again.

    Great characters, complex like the folks of your own hometown , this plus a carefully crafted story ....highly recommended!

    This is barely readable...

    Save your money. It's an insult to Native Americans.
