"Will we let ourselves be destroyed in our turn without a struggle, give up our homes, our country bequeathed to us by the Great Spirit, the graves of our dead and everything that is dear and sacred to us? I know you will cry with me, ‘Never! Never!’”
The Shawnee Tecumseh
MEET THE AUTHOR
Norbert Aubrey was determined to find a gold coin near his home in the redwoods perhaps lost by a logger a hundred and fifty years ago in a time of no banks, he read an old story about the founders of a small town to the north. The Greenwood brothers hunted elk, bear and deer to feed the loggers. Their father, old Caleb Greenwood, was a remnant of the Rocky Mountain fur traders. The Rocky Mountain fur trade became part of American lore after the Lewis and Clark expedition opened up a whole new world west of the Mississippi River, describing a land full of the highly sought-after beaver in a land where "nobody" lived - except the indigenous people who had been living there for generations. Not long before then, the dividing line between the American frontier settlements and Indian territory had been the Appalachian Mountains, where the The Warriors trilogy takes place. This historical fiction series, The Warriors, explores those early times in American history and attempts to shine a more accurate light on the plight of the American natives, starting with the Revolutionary War, as they attempt to defend their land and way of life from the Europeans invaders.
Graduated from Ohio University. Norbert enjoys meditating and martial arts.
