White Calf is a striking natural beauty whose powerful spiritual visions have made her a valued member of the Blackfeet, but a simmering feud threatens to erupt when both the tribe’s chief and a young brave announce their desire to take her as their wife. Wishing only to heal the rift, she fears her choice might endanger the very survival of her people—as well as her heart.
Raven’s Cry is gaining stature among the Blackfeet as a respected young warrior, and as the shaman’s son he is also gifted with a spiritual side. As he and White Calf form a growing bond, he knows his happiness lies in a future with her. But marrying White Calf may cause an irreparable break with the chief, and he must find a way to secure his future without fracturing the tribe.
As a brutal winter looms and the divided tribe is faced with life-threatening cold and hunger, White Calf and Raven’s Cry know that reuniting their people is the only way to survive the peril and ensure their future. As they follow the dangerous path dictated by their visions, they know they must risk their lives—and their hearts—to save the Blackfeet.
“Munn details many intriguing aspects of Native American life, including buffalo hunts, practical marriage unions and an immutable code of honor. Articulating more interiority and character development than is sometimes found in this genre, while not sacrificing the requisite action, she sturdily constructs an unpredictable tale.” —Publishers Weekly
“Soul of the Sacred Earth is a compelling read!” —Historical Novels Review
Morning Butterfly and the Hopi have always been a peaceful people, living in harmony with the land and the other tribes who call the West their home. When Spanish invaders descend with a plan to subdue and then enslave the Hopi, she fears their cherished way of life is in peril. Knowing her people won’t rebel, she turns to a most unlikely ally in Cougar, a Navaho brave whose quiet strength and unflinching courage stir her heart.
Cougar is proud of his people’s abilities as warriors and has never been concerned about the Hopi, but in their looming destruction he sees the fate of his own people, one he is desperate to avoid. Repelled by the Spanish atrocities and drawn to the beautiful Morning Butterfly and her unspoken sensual promises, he knows they must overcome their tribes’ differences to fight a much more sinister foe.
As the Spanish captain becomes more sadistic by the day and a misguided missionary’s zeal to convert the Hopi and save their souls reaches a feverish pitch, Morning Butterfly and Cougar form an unbreakable and everlasting bond in a desperate struggle to save their people—and their hearts.
The Bodine ranch and resort in western Montana is a family business, an idyllic spot for vacationers. A little over thirty thousand acres and home to four generations, it’s kept running by Bodine Longbow with the help of a large staff, including new hire Callen Skinner. There was another member of the family once: Bodine’s aunt, Alice, who ran off before Bodine was born. She never returned, and the Longbows don’t talk about her much. The younger ones, who never met her, quietly presume she’s dead. But she isn’t. She is not far away, part of a new family, one she never chose—and her mind has been shattered...
When a bartender leaves the resort late one night, and Bo and Cal discover her battered body in the snow, it’s the first sign that danger lurks in the mountains that surround them. The police suspect Cal, but Bo finds herself trusting him—and turning to him as another woman is murdered and the Longbows are stunned by Alice’s sudden reappearance. The twisted story she has to tell about the past—and the threat that follows in her wake—will test the bonds of this strong family, and thrust Bodine into a darkness she could never have imagined.
