Compelling and striking, The Vision shares the legendary tale that unlocks over a century-long mystery that had wrapped a young boy’s life. Written by Bill Neville, this captivating literary work takes readers to a suspense-thrilling adventure of a readers wouldn’t want to miss.

It was “seen” over 160 years ago. It was denied and scoffed at by experienced leaders and elders. It was a young boy’s tale; a fabrication to bolster his status within his tribe. Only his family believed. Over the years, through turmoil and cultural upheaval, the truth became known. It is a story of confirmation, standing up for one’s principles and beliefs. As the years passed, the implications become much broader than the original vision. “Who knows how history would have changed if the boy’s story was believed?”

The convictions and choices that Horse Killer, Eagle Who Broke His Wing, Buffalo Robe, Fire Lance, Maxwell Slade (Sun Caller), Randle and Chip, Paxton, Sally, Tully, Fredericks, and Captain Adkins, made at various times over a 160 year span are linked together to confirm the vision. A testament to the keen mind, honest heart and strength of spirit, commitment, values, convictions, and beliefs converge to exonerate one young boy’s tale.

Readers will marvel at the mesmerizing plot of this original and well-thought out tale. With a myriad of life lessons and exciting twists and turn, this exhilarating read will definitely work its way into the reader’s subconscious.

This book will be featured at the 2012 Book Expo America in New York City on June 5-8, 2012.
