About the Author

Warrior’s Song is the first novel by author Thomas M. Hill. An avid student of philosophy, history, politics, and social science, he blends all of these subjects together in a thought-provoking and at times satirical inquiry into the roots of modern American identity and the ageless tension between rationality and spirituality

Format: Paperback
When you read that this book is the "first in a four-part series that documents some of the most formative years in Parker's life as he crosses the great threshold into adulthood," you may immediately think the book is a typical coming-of-age story... NOT... Thomas M. Hill's bio states that he is "an avid student of philosophy, history, politics, and social science." Indeed this first novel has a literary flair that merges this knowledge effectively into his fictional storyline!

Do you believe in destiny? Do you think an individual can be "called" for a specific purpose? I must admit that as I got involved with this story, I began to hypothesize what Parker Shaw might ultimately be at the end of the series. I found, I automatically began to wonder about his becoming president of the United States...and what an individual might be like as a president who was fulfilling his "destiny."

Would he be the "best ever" leader of our country? Or, would he fail having to deal with "the likes of us" here in America... I admit I was intrigued to consider the...possibility...

Parker Shaw is 20 when we enter his life. He is a student at the University of Virginia, in government. His father was a lawyer and his older brother became a lawyer as well and his family has been pushing him to follow in that path.

His personal interests have never led him to automatically follow so when he has a dream and then several other, shall we say, other-worldly experiences, he begins to really consider what his future holds for him.

Leaving school only meant that he would have a short summer before he returned to the University of Virginia, the school that had been established by Thomas Jefferson, a man for whom Parker had great respect.

I see Parker Shaw as a young character with a bright future. I started reading WARRIOR'S SONG expecting an enjoyable but conventional coming-of-age story. After reading the first third, I realized that the book was moving in a much more interesting direction than I had expected. Written in an understated, down-to-earth style, the novel follows a good-natured and well-bred young man who, despite being overlooked in a family of overachievers, has the confidence to follow his own path and to allow his life's mission to unfold in its own way. The series of purposeful coincidences that takes Parker from Virginia to Colorado to the Four Corners area of Arizona kept the pages turning rapidly for me. I enjoyed the camaraderie between Parker and his sidekick, Sam, as well as the insights that brought Parker to the point of embarking on his life's mission. More than that, I enjoyed the imaginative and thoughtful approach that the author has taken to the philosophical and metaphysical questions that Parker faces as he sets forth in life as a responsible yet uniquely intuitive young man. I'm ready for the next installment!

Format: Paperback
This is a well written story of a young man who finds himself at odds with the expectations of family, and society "norms" and has to decide whether to follow the signs that come to him to find his true purpose in life, or to go along with the status quo. Parker Shaw is a college student raised in Maryland and going to college at the University of Virginia with a great interest in Philosophy, History and Politics, and has a special affinity with the writings of Thomas Jefferson and Plato. His family wants him to follow in the footsteps of his father who was a lawyer and a judge, and be like his older brother who is also a succesful lawyer but Parker is aware that this is not what he really wants to do. Being a writer and/or involved in acadamia seems to call to him more but the pressures of following the family traditions and being "successful" like his older brother are ever present.

Parker has had a very intense life like dream of being a Native American in 1700's and being chased in killed. He spends time thinking about it, but for a while he puts it aside and continues with college. At the end of his Junior year, the dream and other experiences he has had in his life leave him with a desire to go to Denver, Colorado for the summer though he can't explain exactly why. His father wants him to get a summer job in a lawyer friend's office but when he goes for an interview, the lawyer friend says some things about Parker being a more "introspective" and "conscious" than most and it reminds him of some things a professor said to him in the past.

Sam, a friend from college connects, and when Parker mentions he has the desire for visiting Denver and the West, Sam is excited and wants to go and has connections in Boulder, Colorado where they can stay.
