From the Author
Concerning Native American references to star creatures and star origins, I was further amazed to discover many of the ancient beliefs not only reference such topics, but, in some cases, boldly make the claim that at least some of the early American cultures originated from the stars and were brought to earth tens of thousands of years ago to settle this planet. It was all I needed to begin the task of crafting this novel - based upon those historical and mythological references.

In addition to an entertaing story I found the historical appendix at the back fascinating, I had no idea there were so many "UFO" sitings accounted for during that period of time. Being an avid reader, I have had experience as a book buyer and bookstore manager for Barnes and Noble and an independent bookstore, I would definitely order this title to market with the Cowboys & Aliens graphic novel, display etc. and I would think it would be a great recommend for a fun summer beach read for the young adult and up audience and sci-fi, western fans! I think the author should make into a graphic novel.

Overall, I enjoyed the book. It was worth my time.
I liked the premise and some of the stories were food for thought and had a somewhat fun, "Gees, wouldn't it be something if this was true?" I would have loved to have seen some more fleshing out of the characters and in some places it left me wanting more.
But all in all, while we know it will never make the, "New York Times Best Sellers" list I did enjoy reading it. Mainly because it was a light-weight, and somewhat fluffy, "What if..." kind of fantasy book. Not bad if you can get it cheap, I'm not sure I would have bought the hardcopy for face value plus shipping though!
He has included some fascinating items in the appendix-an historical recap of the events, description of the Cherokee language and phrases, and some phrases. What he should have done is to explain the phrase or words he uses in the novel.
I have both of his novels.

Great western style novel but intertwined with aliens, indians, and cowboys. John Wayne meets ET type story! A great, fun read.Published 15 months ago by Hillbilly from Sandia
Still reading the book. It's very interesting, but not what I expected. That doesn't mean I'm disappointed, it's just different. I like stretching my thoughts.Published on January 8, 2014 by Look4Good
Very good book. Much food for thought. Must be read with an open mind. History will never be the same for me after this book.Published on May 21, 2013 by Hugh D. Hudgens
This was an interesting and fun book to read. A whole different way of looking at the old west and read what we never learned in schoolPublished on November 7, 2012 by GAIL LORETTA
