The Way of the Eagle: An Early California Journey of Awakening Paperback – June 17, 2011
|New from||Used from|
"The spiritual tale of a young Native American from the days before the Spanish arrived in California....There is hardly a word out of place...what is most commendable is the precision and unpretentiousness of the prose while still managing to invoke the intense quality of Tacu's visionary quest." -Kirkus Reviews
"A real tribute to a culture and a people worth recognizing and honoring... The writing style comes across as effortless ... it seemed as if I were right there, finding the path to my own self-reliance along with Tacu." -Lindsay Horne, "Everyday is an Adventure" book blog.
"The author deftly weaves an exquisitely rich tapestry of spiritual wisdom, adorned with ornate imagery, and intertwined with the profoundly learned wealth of lives lived close to the beating heart of Mother Earth." -Barbara Anne Dunn, Founder DarkHorse Ranch, recipient of the IGHA Legion of St. Francis Award for work in equine welfare
A wonderful story that thoroughly entertains while teaching spiritual values & history of an important culture. Should be in every school library; relevant for adults, but how important for our children as they struggle to find themselves & their own truths. The artwork and story are in beautiful harmony.

About the Author
D.E. Lamont grew up in the burgeoning residential developments of the San Fernando Valley of Southern California in the 1950s and 60s. She and her brothers explored the wild chaparral-covered hills and canyons, where they found signs of former Native American inhabitants. These discoveries excited her interest in earlier times and left her with the haunting impression that many stories about these mysterious, missing people waited to be told. Only many years later did she learn about the original people of Los Angeles, the Tongva, who had been driven to near extinction over the last four and a half centuries by the European and other conquerors. She wished to honor the Tongva and let more people know about them through her story, which is set in the period just before the encroachment of Spain. Today roughly 2,000 descendants of the Tongva live in Southern California. D.E. Lamont has recently published an e-novelette, "LOST WITHOUT LOVE--A Hollywood Tale of the Future," and the short story collection "Two Short Fantasies: One Starry Night's Dream and The Prisoner." She has also co-authored three nonfiction books and is working on the sequel to THE WAY OF THE EAGLE and a full-length novel. She lives with her husband in an apartment overlooking the Hudson River in New York, which at rare, magical times transforms into a mystical rolling river of clouds - for which she named her publishing company, Cloud River Press.
