The Legend Begins…
Set at the turn of the 17th Century in the frontier of Appalachia, The Legend of Tyoga Weathersby follows the adventures of a young settler and the Native American tribe that has adopted him as their own, as he is transformed by deed and circumstance to legendary stature.
Mystically awakened to the promise of “knowing” as generations of Weathersbys before, the rhythms of the natural world unfold in mysterious ways as he is embraced by primal forces that seem beyond his control. Tyoga is tested by the might and savage fury of the leader of a marauding pack of wolves, and in saving the life of his companion Tes Qua Ta Wa (The One Who Opens the Door) his life is transformed and the legend is born.
As the lines between man and myth, spirit dog and mortal soul begin to blur, Tyoga Weathersby is embroiled in the intrigue of intertribal politics, captured by the cry of the wild to fulfill destiny’s call, and ripped apart by his love for the beautiful Cherokee maiden, Sunlei, whom he must set free to keep alive.
Peppered with historical facts from the founding of Jamestown to the massacre at Wolfstenholmstown in 1622, this fast-paced read takes the time to bring the Appalachian Mountains of the late 1600s alive in exquisite detail. From the description of the Weathersby’s rescue of the powerful Powhatan chief, Opencanecanough, to the ferocious battle on the escarpment between Tyoga and the commander of the wolves, this captivating tale keeps the adventure reader turning the page, and the lovers of romance wanting more.
The Legend Continues…
The Legend of Tyoga Weathersby: The Search for Sunlei brings the adventures of Tyoga, Tes Qua Ta Wa and Wahaya-Wacon to a close, but not before the reader has experienced the unknowns of the Appalachian wilds in unimaginable ways. Spurred on by the whispers of the Promise-gift, Tyoga races through the wilderness to rescue the woman of his dreams from the clutches of Quisquis, the fearsome chief of the Iroquois confederation who rules the Ohio territory with astonishing brutality. Separated from everyone he loves and all that he holds dear, Tyoga is pushed to the limits of human endurance and is forced to face the truth about the beast within that compels him forward in search of a reality that does not exist. He discovers that in the end, all that really matters is the light that shines from a heart that is true, and a love that cannot be shaken.
