    "On the eve of his first kill in battle a blood-soaked young warrior, named Pontiac, awakens a prophecy told on the year of his birth. The signs point to him as the chosen warrior, meant to lead his people out of impending extinction. The prophecy is delivered by Awa-Han, a haunting, young, beauty and powerful seer. Her words clearly point an accusing finger at one of the invading European powers that seek to claim the ancestral land of the Natives Americans. Pontiac's people find themselves at the center of two warring empires, fighting to control the lucrative fur trade. Blindly addicted to the trade goods of the French and British, the tribes hesitate to see the impending apocalypse." — From the Synopsis/Treatment

"Writers are, in the first place, readers. I tell every writer I've ever known, either they are deep readers or they cannot become real writers. Read only the best and most challenging and traditional. And reread it."
 — Harold Bloom

"I am a publisher — a hybrid creature: one part star gazer, one part gambler, one part businessman, one part midwife and three parts optimist."
 — Cass Canfield

"Artists and poets are the raw nerve ends of humanity. By themselves they can do little to save humanity. Without them there would be little worth saving."
