The first book in a dramatic fictional trilogy set in the old west. Takoda, a young Lakota warrior, is compelled to fight for his life after his father is killed in a hunting accident, facing murderous beaver trappers and brutal treatment at the hands of a ruthless band of buffalo hunters. However, his future is to become defined by the dark influence of Theodore Winthrop, a Minnesotan senator who wants to rid the plains of the native tribes. Takoda’s survival depends on a chance encounter with a wagon train, where he meets Carla Kopp, with whom he is destined to unveil the scope of Winthrop’s political and military subterfuge, a plan to steal four hundred million dollars in gold, and strategies designed to challenge the Lakota’s very existence.

About the Author
Mike lives with his wife Adele in their seventeenth-century farmhouse in the Yorkshire Dales, England, their three children having spread their wings. He retired in 2013 to focus on writing following a career in hospitality and construction during which he worked in Europe, the Far East, Australasia, and the United States. While writing he divides his time between homes in the United Kingdom and Montana, where he is happiest hiking in the back country or watching wildlife in its natural habitat. However, his passion is to draw attention to conservation and the preservation of indigenous culture, so, although committed to entertaining his readers, his novels are always centered on an underlying cause about which he feels passionately, and to which proceeds from his books are donated.
