At 140 pages long, about a third the size of an average paperback these days,

is really more of a novella than a full blown novel, but there is much to recommend it. The story reminded me strongly of the Native American myths and legends I read as a child, it manages to capture the same......more

I wrote this novella about the almost-forgotten Southern California tribe, the Tongva, after growing up in the countryside and city that they once called home.

I enjoy anything that has to do with Native American culture and I was not familiar with this tribe at all. It is definitely a time travel to think what southern California is like now.

The Way of the Eagle, is a remarkable book. Although a fictional story, the author pulls you into the story, purely because of is wonderfully simple presentation. It is a very spiritual book about a race of people that time forgot. A proud people of the earth.

Wonderful spiritual journey of a young boy. The research of this extinct tribe in California is terrific.

I received this book through GoodReads First Reads. The book was okay, but honestly I enjoyed reading the extras in the back more than the story itself. I felt like the story was a little flat and the characters were one dimensional. There were a lot of questions about why one of the main characters......more
