Sacred Mounds – A Historical Fantasy

Location(s): Mississippi, Natchez, The Hudson Valley

Genre(s): Historical, Fantasy

Era(s): 17th century and present day



Cyclonic hordes of insects, a telepathic despot, body-swapping sex – just a few of the surprises Salvador Samuels encounters when he’s swept back to pre-colonial times, walking in the moccasins of a blind Indian – who in turn has been transported into Salvador’s body in present-day America. Four hundred years apart, they’re bound by a common mission to rescue our world, aided by the mysterious presence of the mounds. With a Foreword by Hutke Fields, Principal Chief of the Natchez Nation.
