The Shadows on the Trail Trilogy is my interpretation of how this particular artifact ended up in northern Colorado from Texas. The Shadows on the Trail Trilogy takes place at the end of the last Ice Age on the plains and mountains of Texas and Colorado. The end of the Ice Age was a time of global warming, rising air temperatures and melting ice caps and glaciers. It was a time when several large mammal species went extinct and when small bands of humans roamed the mountains and plains attempting to survive in an unforgiving and violent world. This is a tale of three prehistoric tribes that collide and culminates into an emotional thriller filled with predatory animals, climate change and conflicts between humans.
