ABOUT THE BOOK:
When impassioned paleontologist Secora James is summoned to South America to confirm or dispel rumors of a creature long-thought extinct, she lands herself in more trouble than she had ever imagined.
Secora knows that the Mapinguari, a giant ground sloth that rivals King Kong for size, is probably just a local myth dreamed up by the indigenous tribes. Or is it? Gideon Yellow Thunder is Montana’s top real estate broker and is perfectly content with his modern life, choosing to leave behind his Lakota heritage in order to lead a life of wealth and success.
But when he starts having visions of bison on the open prairie, he feels compelled to act… Now two separate lives are on a collision course as Gideon sets off for the jungles of Brazil to find a woman he’s never met and protect the sacred beings he’d long given up believing in— the Thunderbirds. Could they be real after all? Or are they just a myth?
Gideon’s about to find out in the adventure of a lifetime, where everything he’d pushed aside is determined to leave its mark on his life.

“One of The Best Native Mystery Suspense I Read!”
“What an amazing ride within this story based around Native Action-Adventure and Suspense! Diane has done a fine job with her first fiction offering. The mysteries and hidden crimes unfold in not one, but within several South America cities as the hunt is on for ancient “Beings” in a unique storyline that pulls the reader in to join the action and suspense…
You have Secora a beautiful Paleontologist, and you have Gideon raised within the Lakota heritage now turned real estate mogul who deserted his native culture for wealth and the “Good Life.” Both their worlds are apart to collide in search of and protect The Mighty “Thunderbird,” then all hell begins to breaks open!
With the stroke of her pen, Diane begins to develop, blend, and weave ancient cultures, native traditions, and ancient myths come alive …Then some twists and turns in this story you don’t expect that will delight, surprise, and have you cheering out loud! …Diane has a knack of bringing characters and creatures POPPING off the pages and I enjoyed her style of writing as well.
As I don’t like to SPOIL an amazing book! So, just go buy it and give it a read.
You won’t be sorry you DID! I highly suggest this one. ”

This book treats a generally ridiculed subject, cryptozoology, as any science should be treated–with an open mind. The main character is Gideon Yellow Thunder, a Lakota who lives off the reservation. He has a brief, and somewhat painful, encounter with a Thunderbird (not the car, the mythological bird). He is told to find a woman in South America and together they must save the Thunderbirds (and another cryptid) from man’s greed.
A thoughtful tale about the sanctity of all life. It is not preachy or overdone but is uplifting and reverent. A really good story.”
