  Not Since Will Henry , 09/19/2008
Reviewer: Edd Voss
What Dances With Wolves did for the Plains Tribes, Bearkiller does for the mountain tribes. Not since Will Henry have I found an author who really understood the culture of the Native Americans of the West. I felt the cold winds blowing off of the snow packed mountains, and tasted the cool water from the icy streams. This is an incredible adventure in the culture of the Blackfoot Tribes of the Rocky Mountains. Go on a raid to get the spotted horses of the Nez Perce, escape from capture by the Flatheads, and rescue the beautiful woman of your dreams from the Crow. It is like sitting around the fire listening to the tale of the great warriors of the tribe. Author- Edd Voss-Washington

  Story Telling at its Best , 09/19/2008
Reviewer: Sherry Gibson
Story Telling At It's Best: D.J. Stephens has done an excellent job of pulling the reader right into the story with the characters! The author has given very close attention to details and has an uncanny ability to entwine accuracy within his story telling. Bearkiller is an adventure that caught my attention on the first page and drew me so deeply into the story I could not stop reading. I was one with the characters, experiencing the Native American life page after page. The story is at times raw and rough as life was in the days the Native Americans roamed free in the Montana mountains. I held my breath through gruesome battles that were handled with delicacy for all who read. I expereinced great hunts and felt the thrill of the kill! This book is full of action and adventure yet invovles love and caring. Throughuot the entire book I appreciated the respect the author displayed to the Native American and their beliefs. This was brought out in such a clear and tender way. I was captivated from the first page and the pace of the book remained true to the end. This is by far one of the best by a new author that I have had read. D.J. Stephes proved to be an artist with words. He took the tiniest details and made them become real to my eyes. If I were to recommend just one book from Publish America as a must read, Bearkiller would be my choice. The only disappointment I felt with this book was the fact that I came to the end and there was no more to read! When I did read the end, D.J. Stephens did not disappoint me. The story ended as well as it began and as well as it read all the way through. I walked away from this book feeling I had been blessed with a very up close and personal glimpse into the life of my ancestors. I knew when I put this book down I had just read the work or a real professional! Reader and Author, Sherry L Gibson

  From Kuwait , 09/23/2008
Reviewer: Eric Honeycutt
I have to say, up front, I am not a big reader. I picked up your book Bearkiller and I could not put it down. From start to finish it kept me reading, I even wanted to miss work just to see what Bearkiller would do next, but duty and soldiers come first, so I put the book down the first day just long enough to work and I had to finish reading it that night. The adventures were adventurous to say the least but close to realistic, the romance was relatable to the romance we pursue in our daily life, and the honor and valor in which he fought every battle is one that every soldier hopes to achieve in that split second of fate. Thank you, for sending us a piece of your work and taking the time to sign every copy. I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future. Sincerely, Eric D Honeycutt SFC, USA Platoon Sgt
