As a child, author Nate Jhonsen traveled with his father across the Southwest, following old prospector and Native American trails and listening to Native American legends. His new novel, “Flying Hawk, Slave Boy, 9,500 BC: ‘Thoughts and Ramblings’ By” (published by WestBow Press), draws from the Kiowa stories he recalls to tell the tale of a brave slave boy named Flying Hawk.
“My education was following in my father’s footsteps into the desert lands where first hand he pointed out the ancient drawings on rock walls,” recalls Jhonsen. “I drank from desert springs, and yes, we searched for gold.”
“Flying Hawk, Slave Boy, 9,500 BC” chronicles the many adventures of Flying Hawk, a young slave boy who fights for his survival and that of his people. On his journey across the old continent and the new world, Flying Hawk encounters new love and an ancient tribe known as the Old People.
An excerpt from “Flying Hawk, Slave Boy, 9,500 BC”:
“Kuska walked up along the stream then taking a willow branch entered the stream and beat the water. Soon fish were swimming around the trap, Kuska eased into the trap pitching fish of all sizes out. Flying Hawk was laughing at the antics that Kuska was going through when she slipped and went in.”
“Flying Hawk, Slave Boy, 9,500 BC”
