The Storyline Takes into Account Recent Archeological Findings about the Peopling of Ancient America and Includes the Author’s “Form Theory of Everything,” Which Unifies Time, Space, Matter, All Forces and the Seven Dimensions of the Universe.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. /Send2Press Newswire/ — Hallmark Emporium today announced the publication of “Toby Erdrich and the Golden Eclipse,” a historical and somewhat romantic fantasy-adventure novel. Lee White Fox takes young-hearted readers into the world of American Indians in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula before any white people showed up–well, at least not in over ten or fifteen thousand years, if experts are beginning to get it right about the peopling of ancient America.

In this novel, readers will discover the good character and loyalty of a brand new friend, fifteen-year-old Toby Erdrich. The Chippewa boy manages to get himself transported back to pre-Columbian times, where he is forced to live and survive with some of his ancestors–including his own grandfather! How is that possible? Well, for space buffs with an interest in eclipses, the story’s locale happens to lie precisely halfway between the centerline and the edge of the path of totality–which matters a whole lot when it comes to certain golden eclipses!

But the ancient gold medallion inherited by Toby also plays a major role in effecting the bizarre time-changes that make it possible for readers to get this rare and authentic sensation of what life could be like for a young American Indian living over a thousand years ago. You will experience what it must have been like to abandon oneself completely to the forest in ancient times, and you will know barely-civilized living–and yet walk on Earth at a time when many of our recently lost liberties were still intact. There are no cameras or listening devices in this world!

Toby and Running Wolf, his warrior grandfather, must meet the challenges thrown at them by Mother Nature, and it always helps to have the Great Spirit on your side! But gentle readers will enjoy peaceful times, too, like when Toby falls in love with White Flower, a cute Ottawa girl…who he must later try to rescue from marauding Iroquois kidnappers!

Readers will come away from this novel with a better understanding of American Indians, and with a better appreciation for some of the unique problems their ancestors faced so many years ago…keeping in mind that the unrestrained manner of living experienced by young Toby Erdrich and others in this story did occasionally lead to extreme brutality, especially during times of territorial warfare.

The truth of the matter is that wilderness living was sometimes hostile and sometimes friendly…and much depended on what a young, twenty-first century reservation Indian like Toby Erdrich would make of it.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Some in literary circles have referred to novelist and prize-winning poet/short story writer Lee White Fox as the Upper Midwest Man of Mystery. And for good reason: he was born January 17, 1962 on an early, experimental, hippy-like commune somewhere along the Muskegon River (no one knows exactly where) in Southwestern Michigan, in old Pottawatomie Indian territory. He is a Native American, with a light sprinkling of both Northwestern European and Jewish ancestry.

Recently retired from U.S. Army Special Intelligence, Colonel Fox has lived abroad most of his life, doing stints in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Israel, Taiwan, and, most recently, Mexico. He currently resides with his Jamaican-American wife and three daughters in Bloomington, Minnesota, where he raises homing pigeons and rare Egyptian dogs with little or no hair!

Unlike most authors, Lee White Fox occasionally likes to make his stories available free of charge (www.thegoldeneclipse.com)…and he actually welcomes communications from his readers.
