Inhaltsangabe: On the vast and indescribably beautiful South Rim of the Grand Canyon a young Hualapai boy faces a bleak future in 1902. River Thunder's mother has just passed into the Spirit World and his father has nothing left to give the boy except his hand carved flute and his magical gift for music. It is a time in America's history when Native American children were separated from their loving families, tribes and even their ancient and traditional cultures and sent to distant "Indian Schools" for re-education and vocational training. River Thunder will carry his flute, courage and trusting innocence to the Hackberry Day School still standing today on old Route 66 while never once imagining how his fate will one day soar like an eagle over the magnificent Grand Canyon. His life's journey will carry River Thunder into a tender but forbidden love and the terrifying but exhilarating experience of aerial warfare fought in a World War I biplane. RIVER THUNDER was the recipient of the prestigious Western Writers of America's 2009 Spur Award for Best Western Audio Book. The story begins in the early 1900?s and ends shortly after World War I, and is set against the harsh background of Arizona?s rugged northern mountains and the magnificent Grand Canyon.

Vom Autor: On old and famous Route 66 in the northwest corner of Arizona there is a large two-story building that always intrigued me.  Why was it out there in the middle of nowhere? What had been its purpose and story?  Some years ago  I went to the tribal headquarters of the Hualapai Reservation in a little town called Peach Springs and finally solved the mystery of the lonely and abandoned brick building.  It had been and Indian School!  And so began a journey for me with the Hualapai learning about Indian boarding schools, their fascinating culture and the vast landscape that hugs the South Rim of the majestic Grand Canyon.  River Thunder is a boy who has a dream and along the way just happens to fall in love with his headmaster's strong-willed daughter.  Can you imagine how this romance would have gone over just before WWI?  I tried to imagine two really smart, good kids trying to believe that they could grasp the American dream and share a life together given all the prejudices and social taboos of those difficult times.  I gave River Thunder the gift of music...and bought several of my own Native American flutes and learned to play them...although not nearly as well as River Thunder.  This novel was very special to me both in the story and the research that was required to try to write it well enough to win a national award.  In closing, I sincerely hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed learning about the Hualapai culture and history.
