Peggy: Book Three of Interwoven

by Gaylier Miller

PEGGY, the third historical novel of the "Interwoven" series, begins in early 1917, in Milton, Florida, when the aspiring pianist, Peggy Susan MacDonald, is seventeen. In subsequent chapters, the story flashes back to 1865 in Coon Hill, Florida, when Nancy O'Neill and John MacDonald first meet, and then jumps, briefly, to 1898, before Peggy is born. Peggy plays the leading role in this story, but she carries with her an expanding cast of supporting characters who lived before and then along with her. Peggy is the much younger sister of Nelda MacDonald, the character who married Cleve McMillan, the main character in the previous novel, CLEVE. Peggy is mentioned only briefly in CLEVE, just as Cleve is mentioned only briefly in the first novel, WAITING DEER. The theme of all three books ...

Hunters of the Columbian mammoth

by del valle, adrian

Twelve thousand years ago along the Pacific Coast of what would one day become the state of Oregon, generations of hunting to feed an expanding population were depleting the Native American's resources. Forests that were once rich in deer and elk, took longer to make the kills needed to feed the tribes. Blocked from migrating eastward were mountain ranges, a forbidden place inhabited by packs of dire wolves as large as Caucasian Mountain dogs. Filled with the lore of rumored evil, the tribes halted at the natural barrier unable to go any further. Fiercely aggressive, they were at war amongst themselves, a danger that could easily be left behind. However, facing the unknown presented its own dangers. The forbidden land before them stopped the advancing tribes at the very edge of the forests...
