Sample Chapter

CHAPTER 1     In a small Cheyenne camp high up on the eastern side of the mountians, just over the border into Canada, a young (momahtatane) holy man sat high upon a rock ledge over looking the valley below, his arms lifted in prayer. At age twenty-eight, he was tall, slim of hip, and broad of shoulder, wearing only a plain breach clout and moccasins.  His hair, hanging free and long about his bronze shoulders, was adorned with a medicine wheel medallion, one eagle feather and four red tailed hawk feathers that were woven into a single braid yhat hung on the right side of his head. His body was painted with his prayer colors ( white and black) in a mixture of zig zags, slashes, and dots in the sacred colors of reg, white, yellow, and blue denoting the spirits of the four winds.

 CHAPTER 2       It was high on the east side of the mountain in a small cabin often surrounded by mist, that Helayna (Helee) made her home. Her father Zeke Ward had trapped this mountain for fourty years and died last winter of the lung sickness.  Helee only vaguely remembered her mother who had died of the fever when she was only ten winters, and now Helee was totally alone. She was not afraid to live here, the forest was her home, and the animals in it were her friends. She could survive.............. But she was alone, so desperately alone. She had animal friends, of course, but she prayed for human contact and often cried herself to sleep for want of company.
