The Divided Man, a Novel of the Ghost Dance

The Divided Man, a Novel of the Ghost Dance by John Sauer is available through Smashwords, Amazon, and B&N.



Here is the overview: Wounded Knee was meant to be the end of the Sioux Nation. But it was only the beginning. On December 29, 1890 the U.S. Calvary put a brutal end to the Ghost Dance. But before the soldiers finished their slaughter one small boy danced a prayer to save his people and in his dying vision, reached out to the one who could lead them into a new life.

It is summer 2012 and that prayer is about to be answered. Luke Kimball is The Divided Man, a global security expert who isolates himself from emotional involvement because people who get close to him end up dead.

On the eve of the war that destroys the world the Ghost Dance prayer finds him, spinning the Hoop of his life in directions he could not have imagined. Claimed by the prayer, Luke is connected to past and future, chosen to be a savior of legend, a unifying force of past and future, of man and god.

Luke must awaken the Sacred Tree of Life and balance the harmony between human and spirit existence or life will cease to exist. Opposing him is the Manitou, an elk-headed god who has stolen Luke’s soul and requires death for its return.

Luke’s quest takes him across a land sundered by war and on the verge of miraculous change, far into the realms of once-mythical gods and deep within him to face the demons that have haunted his life.

He must find the six people who with him have the power to awaken the Tree. His journey is inward as well. Luke is guided into the Spirit World and backwards through time by Native American deities who help him discover his true destiny as not only as a savior, but as a god.


The Divided Man has received good reviews so far and was a second round choice in this year's Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards. 50% of the book is available free through Smashwords, I hope you will like it and let me know what you think.

Happy Holidays,

John Sauer

Thanks Caleb,

The designer was Julie Mills of Design Pony in Portland Oregon, julie@designpony.com. She really worked hard to bring the core elements of the book together in one image.

Best,

John
