An American Indian Tribe Influenced by Two Ancient Societies from Another Galaxy. In Ancient times there was a battle between good and evil on Earth and there was a promise. Was the promise kept?
Perched high upon lofty cliffs overlooking the turbulent waters of the Missouri River, the great Mandan tribe could survey the river and the wild prairies of North Dakota. From these walled fortresses, like ruling kings from medieval times, the rich and powerful Mandan knew how to wield magic, magic taught to them by the great god Lone Man, one of the People from Above.
According to the Mandan myths and lore, the People from Above sped through the skies in vehicles that were like comets and landed on the prairie. When Lone Man visited, he taught them magic because they were special. They were his chosen ones.
This is a unique take on real events, with magic, the supernatural, and ... the promised return of the god Lone Man.
The year is 1837. Clayton Pinckney is enthralled with the Indians. He is a sixteen-year-old, aspiring writer who has little interest in his advantaged life. He is handsome, well educated, and the son of a wealthy plantation owner. However, his enthrallment with the Indians is a shame to his family. Clayton is determined to prove he is not just a foolish boy with silly ideas, such as his ideals about the Indians. He feels he can ignite imaginations and provoke curiosities with his writing. A heated clash with his father is all that is needed to prompt him to run away from home in search of that wild and exotic Mandan tribe and follow his calling.
When he does find them, naïve Clayton is thrilled with this unique tribe, their elaborate culture, and their amazing appearance. Many have blond hair, and others have white hair. They are like nothing he has ever seen or even imagined. At first, he is completely enamored with what looks to him like a utopian society. He becomes very involved with the flamboyant chief Rained for Many Days and falls hopelessly in love with the chief's magical, young daughter, the exotic and, at times, very frightening Crying Wind.
However, as he learns more about the Mandan, he finds he has a big problem-much of what he has seen is too unbelievable to reveal.
A Whisper from Eden is legends, magic, romance, wild vistas of North Dakota, Saskatchewan, Wyoming and Alaska in the nineteenth century, and the result of extensive research. Written a lyrical style that will move you to laugh, cry, and wonder-did that really happen? Be inspired by a story that you will not soon forget.

About the Author
Hello. We are Lee and Gary Jordan, co-authors of speculative fiction with a light touch. We are just a couple of old fogies who love to write.
Wait! That's not right. An old fogey is defined as a very conservative, outdated person. We' re anything but that. Our Muse has begged us to break the shackles of genre and let our imaginations run FREE, to write entertaining stories that let readers escape into unique places. So our tales defy strict category and may contain a mix of genre, such as fantasy, romance, science fiction, action and adventure, mystery and even some occult. Most of them take place in our real world but bend reality.
Why? Because normal reality is boring.
So we have rebelled. We have been told that authors who do not fit into pigeon holes are hard to find on the virtual book shelf. But you found us, and we hope you join our fans.
We live in Hollywood, but we don't spend much time in the wonderful California sunshine. Instead we are maniacs who sit in front of our computer screens, weaving tales we hope you will enjoy.
