   Wa
nders Far lived in dangerous times and was faced with one difficult challenge after another. He was a skinny, quiet boy who was raised on the banks of a tributary of New York State’s Mohawk River, hundreds of years before colonists arrived. One lifetime was not enough for Wanders Far’s old soul. From a very young age, his wanderlust compelled him down one path after another. No village could contain him. He was happy living a simple life in the physical world during challenging times. The spirit world had other plans. A wise, enigmatic shaman mentored Wanders Far and helped him cultivate the supernatural visions that haunted him. His guide could only help him so far. He set out to become a runner, carrying important messages across the lands of his people and their enemies. He ended up fulfilling a much greater destiny than he ever imagined.
"This engrossing, well-written novel tells the story of a pivotal moment in Iroquois history through a well-traveled protagonist." - Kirkus Reviews

MY REVIEW

I give this book 5 stars simply for the historical aspect of it.

The writing is slow but we learn how it was for the Indians.

I liked being in the Indians' camp and listening to them tell stories. They have families just like we do. I felt like I made friends with them.

Life has everyday challenges for Wanders Far. But then life does for every single person even in today's world.
I enjoyed learning about Wanders Far. His life's journey was fascinating. How interesting it must've been to live back even before the colonists did! I felt like I was seeing it through Wanders Fars' eyes for the 1st time! Just wow!
The story was entertaining and I learned much.
I strongly recommend this book! You will learn much!
I will look for more from this author in the future. This book was fabulous!
My thanks to the author for a copy of this book. NO compensations were received. All opinions are my own. (

About the Author


After a chaotic day as a business person, Dave enjoys getting lost in the settings he imagines and spending time with the characters he creates. Writing historical fiction is like making paintings of the past. He loves to weave fact and fiction together, stirring in action, adventure, romance, and a heavy dose of the supernatural with the hope of transporting the reader to another time and place. He is an Adirondack 46-er, which means he has hiked all of the highest peaks in New York State, so it should not be surprising when Dave attempts to glorify hikers as swashbuckling superheroes in his writing. Wanders Far—An Unlikely Hero’s Journey is the first in a series of books in the Adirondack Spirit Series.
