Read The Story: A Song of Silver Crow by Charles Silver Crow-fReado
The Story Behind This Book
My intention in writing the book was to incorporate my Native American heritage and interest in metaphysics into a theme that had the impact of the Celestine Prophecy and the global intrigue of the DaVinci Code, adding A Course in Miracles in the spin... In many ways I believe that all the characters exist, perhaps in some undiscovered parallel universe. As the storyline started to unfold I observed that my attention would be drawn to something that randomly occurred around me or in the news... and it was the exact bit of information/event/discovery that was needed for the next part of the plot, so a lot of the situations in the book are real events or things... both past and present.
I was raised by my grandparents and my grandfather was a full blood Potawatomi who shared his spiritual and tribal heritage with me in an ongoing silent dialogue that remains central to my character today, 50 years and more later. A large part of the book is biographical and, on some occasions, somewhat intimate as to the revelation of what makes a "halfbreed" in the 21st Century tick. Ultimately, The Story is a vision of hope and what might be the salvation of the human experience on planet earth.
