SUN BORN just came out!

people-of-the-songtrail-mass sun-born

Hi All,

We are happy to announce that SUN BORN, the second book in the PEOPLE OF THE MORNING STAR trilogy, just hit the shelves. We really love the new cover concept that our great publisher has used for SUN BORN, and the paperback of recently released, PEOPLE OF THE SONGTRAIL. Both designs use real prehistoric artwork, which just delights us!  

Winter is settling over Wyoming as we write.  We rose to 36 degrees this morning, with a light dusting of snow on the ground.  It’s always so beautiful to look out across the meadow and see the buffalo frosted white, their warm breaths rising like clouds into the air above them.  Winter is a quiet, serene time in northern Wyoming.  The songbirds are gone, leaving mostly hawks, chickadees, and dark-eyed juncos to fill the trees during the day.  At night, owls call from the red cliffs, their voices mixing with those of coyotes and the occasional howl of wolves.  

We hope you are all having a lingering and colorful autumn.

Best Regards,

 

Mike and Kathy

An Inuit perspective on climate change http://www.newspaper.indianlife.org/story/2015/01/05/news/earth-has-shifted-inuit-elders-issue-warning-to-nasa-and-the-world/582.html

The Inuit perspective on climate change is similar to the hypotheses developed by Milutin Milankovich in the early 20th century.  He said that the earth spun in space like a top winding down, which meant that it “wobbled.”  

 

Buffalo Skulls for Sun Dance

Buffalo are sacred animals for a number of people, including us. Over the past couple of decades, we have been happy to donate buffalo meat, skulls, and hides for Native American sacred ceremonies around the country. One of our friends came by this weekend to collect skulls for two different Sun Dances, one in South Dakota this summer, and another in Arizona next year. It’s always a good feeling to know that the spirit of the buffalo, present in the skulls, will be cared for and honored.

We had smoked buffalo brisket for dinner with Mike’s green-chili-macaroni-and-cheese. Never met anybody who could turn away a second helping of Mike’s mac and cheese.
