Panther in the Sun by John Comfort

“AN ENJOYABLE READ . . . renders an anxious excitement as the undeserved hardships of a single American family unfold. . . . Truly, a story with a viewpoint and tradition not often told: that of the American Indian.” 
—Chief Hatcher of the Waccamaw Tribe

“PANTHER IN THE SUN is a powerful novel that reveals the oft-hidden stories of the Native American Indian. With the pulse of love beating through the storyline, this is a moving depiction of a life of hardship saturated with conviction and love. John Comfort asks the bigger questions — how does one live with courage and principle in a world that is being destroyed? Panther in the Sun is a compelling novel both heartbreaking and endearing.”
—Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times Best Selling Author

“PANTHER IN THE SUN is a deeply moving story, not just about one Native American family, but about universal human challenges and, especially, courage based on unmovable love of one's family in the face of extreme adversity.”
—Chris Ely, PhD, Professor of English, Ball State University

After tragedy tears apart a Native American family, a father must endure harsh and unjust consequences and fight to find his children. We follow the separated lives of the father and his two sons as they make their way in an unforgiving and hostile world. 

Panther in the Sun is a powerful story of courage, love, determination, and reconciliation.

John Comfort has drawn much inspiration from his grandfather, George Riser, whose ancestrally-diverse background includes Oglala Lakota Sioux bloodlines. George was an orphan, he endured great hardship during the Great Depression, and he fought as an elite Frogman in the island campaign of World War II. 

The author lives in Bluffton, South Carolina with his wife and two sons.
