This story depicts the life of a modern girl changing the life of a headstrong Indian living in the 1800’s.
Essie Sherwood, living in the present, grows up loving hot-air ballooning and takes off on her first solo adventure. Caught in a whirlwind, she crash-lands on a cliff unhurt, but with a deflated balloon. Star Gazer, believing the balloon is a giant bird that will endanger his village has shot it down, but is confused to find a beautiful woman in the basket. Each believing the other an enemy, their first encounter is far from civil. After Star Gazer takes her to his village, his brother, the chief, orders him to take her to the nearest fort. Reluctantly, Star Gazer agrees knowing he has lost his heart to the white woman.
At the fort, Essie meets a scientist with a time traveling machine and the man agrees to take Essie back to her century. But, Star Gazer finds them and jumps onto the machine finding himself in the future. Soon they discover that the distant future has been changed and they have to return to the past, where their lives become more complicated

About the Author
Because I am dyslexic, I find writing a challenge, but my love of writing has inspired me to write more than sixty children’s stories, over two hundred poems and thirty-seven Romance Novels. I have also illustrated two story books used by primary teachers and students as a part of a vocal hygiene program at University of Arizona’s Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences. My credits also include four stories published by McFadden Publishing Co. in NYC. I wrote, illustrated and published two books of poetry used as fund-raisers by the Leukemia and Multiple Sclerosis organizations. I wrote illustrated and published in one book, forty-two children’s stories. I had an exhibition at the King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne, Fl of my pen and ink drawings of animals. Recently, I have had three E-Book Romance Novels and a book of short stories published on the Spangaloo.Com website and another on the Smashwords.Com website. I make my home in Melbourne, Florida where I continue to write and illustrate
