We as a global society, are and have been Stewards of our planet since our human times began. I wrote this short novel two years ago and published it on Kindle. Many of you have read it, but I offer it here again. The importance of this alternative historical fiction strikes me each day as I question how two centuries of ‘progress’ have led us to headlines of nuclear war, climate change, and ocean destruction. This is the story of how indigenous tribes lived on the continents we now call the americas.
Most of these tribes date back far beyond the 20,000 year mark and had very distinctive ways of caring for the Gifts of the Earth.
Please join me as I dreamt of a world that might have been. I ask that none take offense to the cultures represented, but welcome your comments.
