With much of the world still undiscovered, a small band of people live a peaceful life, until the Dream Vision of a young boy changes everything. Only nine winters old, Feather Floating in Water's dreams turn his seemingly ordinary childhood into the journey of a lifetime. He must help his people face a terrifying destiny from which they cannot turn away. He must find a way to make his people listen.
Bright Sun Flower, the boy's grandmother, guides his beginnings, teaching him about the Circle of Life, and how without it, no life can exist. But he needs a bigger push, and gets it from a grey wolf and a Great Elder. The boy's journey leads him to discover that the Circle of Life involves all people, all living things, and not just the world he knows.
In the end, an ancient People guide the boy in his Visions, toward an unexpected place hidden from outsiders.
"A beautiful story of what should have been... The story is strongly written and will appeal to those who believe that mankind should live in harmony with nature. If you expect savagery and blood - look elsewhere." ~ John Chapman

About the Author
I’ve been a wanderer, and a journeyman newspaper pressman. I’ve spent years rescuing animals and learning from them. They’ve taught me that life does not have to be so hard, if you go with the flow and not against it.
My life revolves around writing and my family, which includes, of course, my animals. Two car accidents in the mid-nineties changed my life. I resented it at first, until I understood I had simply been put on another path. It was not an easy one, and continues to be a challenge, but I accepted it, and I learn with each step I take.
I write because I am compelled to pass on knowledge. My first book, Circles, is more than just a story of family, or of the people who first settled in the Americas. It is a story of spirituality and the simple humor of everyday life, but also of the fear of the unknown. Life presents us a path; how we choose to navigate that “circle” is up to us.
