Fans of the SHADOWS ON THE TRAIL
series from bestselling author John Bradford Branney are already ordering copies of the final book in the trilogy in droves.
What happens when the hunters
become the hunted? That is what readers have been eagerly waiting to find out
in WINDS OF EDEN, the thrilling finale to John Bradford
Branney’s series of books about a Paleo-Indian tribe in prehistoric America.
In the conclusion of this highly
acclaimed historical series of novels, the Folsom People return
plains and mountains of Texas and Colorado at the end of the last Ice Age, a
time of dramatic climate change, rising temperatures and melting glaciers. This
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. WINDS OF EDEN quickly
propels readers into the story where the first two novels of the trilogy left
off. Chayton and the Folsom People are continuing their fight of survival in a
violent and unpredictable prehistoric world with little more than their spears
“We are thrilled to be bringing out
this latest installment,” said Sarah Luddington, Mirador Publishing’s
Commissioning Editor. “John has a knack for bringing this era to life and
combines this with an incredible eye for detail in a thoroughly engaging story.
John’s attention to historical accuracy is extraordinary and he even includes
three genuine indigenous languages within the narrative.”
Hailed for its accurate depiction of
life on the prairies and mountains of prehistoric Texas and Colorado, WINDS
OF EDEN is a fast-paced read that accurately builds on clues from the
archaeological record and traditions practiced by the first Americans.
“In the first two books of the SHADOWS
ON THE TRAIL TRILOGY my emphasis has been on the dynamics of survival
for these early explorers of prehistoric America,” the author stated. “In WINDS
OF EDEN, I took a slightly different direction from the first two books
of the trilogy. Yes, the book is still a high-intensity adventure, but I have
added another twist. In WINDS OF EDEN, the main characters must
face the reality of their own finite mortalities. I am hoping that readerstake away much more than just reading a fun adventure story. This
book is my most fulfilling work that I have written so far and I hope readers
feel the same way.”
John Bradford Branney holds a
