This and other incredible adventures are shared in SIERRA TWO, the true story of one man’s literal and metaphysical journeys. In the end, it’s a story about embarking on a mission greater than oneself—a journey of finding the value in your life and the responsibility of following your true life’s path as a protector of others, no matter what the cost.
On a river code-named SIERRA TWO, Marc Lonergan-Hertel is seriously wounded after he loses his jungle guide to a violent death in the “lost world” of the Amazon. At his lowest moment of scouting a three-thousand-mile journey for a National Geographic television show in one of the last remaining biosphere reserves in the Guiana Shield, he is befriended by a lost indigenous child and an old shaman from an ancient tribe. In an act that seems like repayment for his earlier sacrifices in the cities and slums of Brazil, the shaman saves his life and gives Marc an ominous warning—death will follow the former SEAL through the steaming jungles. It will take everything Marc has learned in his life to keep himself and others alive.
Travel with Marc Lonergan-Hertel on his extraordinary adventures and real-world odyssey to make a difference in this world—one life at a time.
Kathleen Cremonesi knew early on she wanted to be different. Determined to avoid following in her mother's footsteps to an ill-fated marriage, Kathleen left Oregon in her early 20s to travel across Europe. On a whim, this former administrative assistant with wanderlust took a job as a dancer in a circus and, working her way up, became an ostrich-riding, shark-taming showgirl.
Kathleen bonds with the exotic animals that could strike and kill at any moment, but instead bring her a peace she has never known. And when she stumbles into the arms of Stefano, the sexy elephant keeper, she finds a man who understands her wild spirit.
With thrilling prose and vivid descriptions, Kathleen takes the reader around the Mediterranean, where she discovers unexpected friends and learns how to cook, forgive, and love - across language barriers.
