EXCERPT FROM: THE GOLDEN YEARS
"Come with me and look into my window of the past, and walk with me over my grandmother land, the Haida Gwaii (islands of the people), when she was in her golden youth.

Greet all my people and be a part for a time as we walk through the glorious pages of my grandmothers (nunai's) and my grandfathers (chinai's) wonderful life.

The dancing sinuous, wavering, leaping and folding flames pull me out of myself, and I have the very real sensation of flight while still sitting in my place.

Events zip by in my mind so fast that I feel staggered and hard to concentrate and keep my feet on the ground in this reality. Dare I voice my fears aloud even to myself for fear of offending the spirits close to me now? I fight to remain here at this fire and try unsuccessfully to ignore the unreal mind feeling that threatens to pull me out of myself. I cannot!

Tentatively and apprehensively, I allow my mind to reach beyond my ground and beyond the skull of my head.

My spirit seems to fight to fly and my mind of today fights to keep me here and on the ground. This big self-conflict within my being is pushing me all over the place as I reluctantly begin to embrace this feeling of flying while sitting in one place. Oh-h, now I lose my initial fears and slowly pull my mind onto this astral-flight to, - Where? = Letting go, now!

Back and back, far into my ancestors' time, I travel to a golden age and back towards the first people ..."

THE SERIES
The second book in the planned four book series, begins 47,000 years ago and ends around 10,000 years ago at the close of the last glacier event.

The third book begins 10,000 years ago and carries forward to cover to 1774 fur trader contact

The fourth book begins 1774 to modern times and close to 2000plus.

All 2nd, 3rd, and 4th books shall have what I call a transition beginning that gives a brief outline of the last book and a brief forward look to the next book.

The author has several books planned beyond this four part series, one is the almost complete 250 plus page book of the history of Haida Trollers, named "Insensitive to Beauty" and is a running memory of my youth life in the trollers history.

Another is my life 1973 to 20007 involved with Skung Gwaii Ilnagai and all the starting foundations of various movements that I helped to create for Haida. This will be like a thick brochure guidebook created freely by myself as is my right to do so. I gave over that many years to the love of Skung Gwaii and married my Childhood Soulmate there and lived for the last ten years of my Skung Gwaii time there. Five more books soon.
