About the Book

It was “seen” over 160 years ago. It was denied and scoffed at by experienced leaders and elders. It was a young boy’s tale; a fabrication to bolster his status within his tribe. Only his family believed. Over the years through turmoil and cultural upheaval the truth became known. It is a story of confirmation, standing up for one’s principles and beliefs. As the years passed the implications become much broader than the original vision. Who knows how history would have c hanged if the boy’s story was believed? The convictions and choices that Horse Killer, Eagle Who Broke His Wing, Buffalo Robe, Fire Lance, Maxwell Slade (Sun Caller), Randle and Chip, Paxton, Sally, Tully, Fredericks, and Captain Adkins, made at various times over a 160 year span are linked together to confirm the vision. Commitment, values, convictions, and beliefs, converge to exonerate one young boy’s tale. Everyone is in this book – or someone you know. . .
