Seeking Two Elks Fighting: Erik Larson, Sheepeater Indian Series
ISBN: SOFT COVER 9781663212672
Torn between his white man world and his Sheepeater Indian world, Erik Larson faces rising evil which threatens to destroy both worlds.
This is predominately Erik’s continuing story and is the fifth novel in my Sheepeater Indian Series. (All can stand alone since I give adequate background in each.) Erik Larson travels across southern Idaho Territory and up into Montana Territory and then across the Clearwater country and back through the Salmon River country (Slate Creek) and on back to see his sister Katrine. After seeking a second vision, Erik is confused to what his life’s path should be. During most of his travels, he is plagued by evil and attempts to reconcile his beliefs and actions, particularly when he rides with a young man whom he met early on and who is on a mission to exact revenge. I have laced the story with the historical events of the region through which Erik travels. The forthcoming book will address the rising conflict between settlers, the Native Americans (Nez Perce` War and Bannock War) and the Chinese. It will lead up to the Sheepeater Campaign.
The book is written at a cross-over level. Although it deals with some adult themes, including coming-of-age and some romance, the language and descriptions are written at an acceptable level for older teens. The cover illustration is taken from my painting of Jughandle Mountain on the east side of Long Valley in Idaho. I have also illustrated the novel with eleven pen and ink illustrations which are based on themes in the book. My pen and ink maps are based on USGS maps and show the main trails and settlements of the period. I’ve indicated the existing trails through the region in Erik’s time, including the Nez Percé Trail. This was the only route east and west through this region and, ironically, was missed by Lewis and Clark, who went north over Lolo Pass.
Sheepeater: To Cry For A Vision
