Have you ever wondered what the American Continent was like before the Native Americans discovered that Columbus was lost? A time before alcohol, guns and other mechanized New World inventions. The horse came onto the scene with the arrival of the Spanish Explorers in the Sixteenth Century. Before the Natives were introduced to the horse, all travel was by walking. Though many Native tribes were highly sophisticated societies, technology was still very primitive. This story takes the reader to a time of scant historical traces left by a people who believed it was honorable to leave no footprints upon the Mother during one's lifetime. The story itself is an obscure legend that has had reality interwoven with folklore so as to duplicate as closely as possibly the life and times of these people whose culture was wonderfully rich and colorful. This story tells of how the ancient peoples upon the Continent lived before recorded history. What they ate. What they believed in. How they survived. Their politics and social life. My goal is to create a feeling in my readers of having traveled to this interesting and intriguing time and place. To have met the characters in their own environment where they are dealing with their personal concerns and survival.

A man like Johnny Chino …was impossible to forget…although for five long years Bridget Donovan had certainly tried. But when the proud Apache asked for help, Bridget's job as a doctor wouldn't let her say no. Being so close to the man who'd broken her heart would be a trial, and she vowed never to fall for him again. Johnny was certain he'd done the right thing in breaking it off with Bridget. She deserved so much more than someone like him. Yet having her near reminded him of all he'd given up when he'd pushed her away. And those feelings—no matter how much he ignored them—weren't going away. Sometimes, what's meant to be just can't be denied.

This book concerns an actual group of Native Americans known as the Toyah culture who lived in Central Texas for six hundred years, culminating with their disappearance around seven hundred years before the present. This Toyah cultures prehistoric empire began in Taylor County, Texas, and proceeded southeasterly across the Edwards Plateau through South Texas and into Northern Mexico. Their eastern boundary extended to the Gulf of Mexico while their western boundary coincided with the Pecos River basin. The book is written in two parts, with the first part taking place some seven hundred years before present and chronicling the life of Chandana, a strong young Toyah medicine woman and shaman struggling with lifes mundane things and some things quite serious and imposing. Chandanas life is written in the form of a novel as it is based upon the authors discovered evidence as to how her life may have unfolded. The second part of the book illustrates some of the authors discoveries, evaluations, and research among what was left behind by these Toyah Native Americans who lived along Bluff Creek, Flag Creek, and Elmmott Creek. Finally, the author offers direct and circumstantial evidence illustrating why and how this great Toyah Empire was replaced by other Native Americans, starting around the year 1300.

Pretty-shield, the legendary medicine woman of the Crows, remembered what life was like on the Plains when the buffalo were still plentiful. A powerful healer who was forceful, astute, and compassionate, Pretty-shield experienced many changes as her formerly mobile people were forced to come to terms with reservation life in the late nineteenth century. ø Pretty-shield told her story to Frank Linderman through an interpreter and using sign language. The lives, responsibilities, and aspirations of Crow women are vividly brought to life in these pages as Pretty-shield recounts her life on the Plains of long ago. She speaks of the simple games and dolls of an Indian childhood and the work of the girls and women?setting up the lodges, dressing the skins, picking berries, digging roots, and cooking. Through her eyes we come to understand courtship, marriage, childbirth and the care of babies, medicine-dreams, the care of the sick, and other facets of Crow womanhood. Alma Snell and Becky Matthews provide a new preface to this edition.
