Kurzbeschreibung

"The spiritual tale of a young Native American from the days before the Spanish arrived in California.... There is hardly a word out of place ... what is most commendable is the precision and unpretentiousness of the prose while still managing to invoke the intense quality of Tacu's visionary quest and moving nature of his movement."
-Kirkus Reviews

"I found this 'journey' easy to follow, easy to enter into with Tacu, easy to rejoice, hurt, and cry with him on his path to maturity. The grammar was almost exemplary, the font perfect, the cover luxurious. The illustrations were well-executed and added visual delight to this fine book. This book is nearly flawless and I found few areas, if any, that I could comment on in the area of improvements. It was very inspirational."
- Judge's Commentary, 19th Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards, Jan. 2012

In this tale set in the world of a nearly extinct Native American tribe which prospered thousands of years before that same locale became the city of Los Angeles, a young Tongva brave, Tacu, struggles to understand and survive the baffling and often dangerous lessons of Takoda, his mysterious mentor from the North.

Until he does so successfully, he won’t be allowed to travel to the village at the Place of the Stones to undergo his vision quest and formal initiation into manhood - and only by doing so can he earn back the respect of his peers and court the maiden he loves, for he is now shunned by the village as a despicable coward.

But he is being held to a different and difficult path by Takoda. He must go through harrowing life lessons and experiences to prepare him to face his future courageously and with honor, and bring him to recognize his own spirituality. Tacu never imagines the crucial impact these teachings will have on him, the spiritual gifts with which he will be endowed, or how dramatically his life will change before his journey to manhood is complete. A thoughtful and moving inspirational story about America’s First People.

Über den Autor

D.E. Lamont grew up in the mushrooming residential developments of the San Fernando Valley of Southern California in the 1950s and 60s. She and her brothers explored the wild chaparral-covered hills and canyons, where they found signs of former Native American inhabitants. These discoveries excited her interest in earlier times and left her with the haunting impression that many stories about these mysterious, missing people waited to be told. Only many years later did she learn about the original people of Los Angeles, the Tongva, who had been driven to near extinction over the last four and a half centuries by the European and other conquerors. She wished to honor the Tongva and let more people know about them through her story, which is set in the period just before the encroachment of Spain. Today roughly 2,000 descendants of the Tongva live in Southern California. D.E. Lamont has recently published an e-novelette, "LOST WITHOUT LOVE--A Hollywood Tale of the Future," and the short story collection "Two Short Fantasies: One Starry Night's Dream and The Prisoner." She has also co-authored three nonfiction books and is working on the sequel to THE WAY OF THE EAGLE and a full-length novel. She lives with her husband in an apartment overlooking the Hudson River in New York, which at rare, magical times transforms into a mystical rolling river of clouds - for which she named her publishing company, Cloud River Press.

Mehr über den Autor

Guten Tag, meine Deutsche Freunden! Bitte, entshuldigen sie mir, ich spreche nur ein Bisschen Deutsch! Also, English:

I grew up in the blossoming residential developments of the San Fernando Valley of Southern California in the 1950s and 60s. For those of you who haven't visited this area, the "Valley" is a semi-arid region which receives airflow off the desert to the north. During the winter it can go down into the 40s, but much of the year it is very warm, and summertime temperatures can go above 100 degrees F.

As children, my brothers and I explored the wild chaparral-covered hills and canyons bordering the Valley, where we found signs of former Native American inhabitants. We found a cave with markings on the walls and ceiling, and we found Indian arrowheads. These discoveries excited my interest in earlier times and left me with the haunting impression that many stories about these mysterious, missing people waited to be told.

Only many years later did I learn about the original people of Los Angeles, the Native Americans called the Tongva ("People of the Earth"), who had been driven to near extinction over the last four and a half centuries by the Spanish conquerors and later other dominant forces such as the governors and proprietors of the huge Mexican land grants.

Unlike other tribes, the Tongva were never well known, never received reservation land from the U.S. government, and were largely dispersed and decimated as a people. To the best of my knowledge, they are still not a registered U.S. Native American tribe. Today roughly 2,000 descendants of the Tongva live in Southern California.

I wished to honor the Tongva and let more people know about them through this story, which is set in the period just before the encroachment of Spain. My book is a novelette with spiritual awakening as its theme.

I presently live with my husband in an apartment overlooking the Hudson River in Southern New York - which at rare, magical times transforms into a mystical rolling river of clouds. I am also co-author of three nonfiction books and am working on the sequel to THE WAY OF THE EAGLE and another novel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Way of the Eagle - American Indian Spiritual Teachnigs 29. Oktober 2011
Von C. Firstman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This story reminded me of "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" in a number of ways. It is a story of a young Southern California Indian man who is learning to be one of the spiritual leaders of his future tribe. He is taught in the way of the American Indian to appreciate the spiritual nature of himself and all living things. Journey with him on this lesson of a lifetime...well researched and accurately portrayed by the author DE Lamont and beautifully illustrated by JH Soeder.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Important Aesthetic Work of Art 23. Oktober 2011
Von Mo Baiardi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a wonderful story that thoroughly entertains while teaching spiritual values and some history of an important culture in our world. I couldn't help thinking while reading this story that it should be in every school library; it's relevant for adults but how important for our children growing up today with similar moral issues, and what an aesthetic way to help them as they struggle to find themselves and their own truths rather than just going along with the crowd. The artwork and story are in beautiful harmony. Thank you so much, author and artist!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Phoenix 4. Oktober 2011
Von Gary Jordan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The Way of the Eagle: An Early Calfornia Journey of Awakening. Masterfully written story about an ancient tribe of California, and the journey of a boy becoming a man. The writer has done an amazing job of research into this wonderful tribe, finding details of language and culture, and painting a picture with words for us so that we might experience what life could have been like for this extinct people. My hat is off to the writer. This is a terrific story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Soar like an the eagle 15. September 2011
Von eddie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The Way of the Eagle tells the tale of a Native American boy learning who he is. D. E. Lamont weaves a beautiful tapestry filled with details of native life in southern California at a time before European conquest. Her writing blends the exacting detail of daily Native American life with an exquisite spiritual quest that makes it easy to experience the beauty and power of a culture all but lost in the modern world.

Reading this tale was a pleasure, and I highly recommend it as entertaining and enlightening fare. Be prepared to soar like an eagle.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spiritually Uplifting Book 3. September 2011
Von Searcher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I could see that D.E. Lamont went to great lengths to depict a race almost entirely gone. Her metaphorical and colorful writing took me right into the story and made me feel as if I was right there!
