Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0970122101, Paperback)

Historical novel:

On the eve of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Vietnam War comes a novel so intriguing it will transport you back to the rain forest of Vietnam.

'Song of the Loon' ushers you into a world of romance, ageless Indian lore and the stark reality of war that captures the heart and imagination. It is written as a memoir by Cole Morgan, the main character. It opens on the battlefield of Vietnam, and as Cole tells his story he returns the reader to the peaceful countryside of his youth in northwestern Montana. It abounds with Indian wisdom and mystique in the form of a half-Indian grandfather with a Ph.D in mountian lore and Indian legend.

'Song of the Loon' is an epic tale of three children, two boys and a girl that grow up together during a era of prosperity and innocences. The book then continues through one of the most unsettled times America has faced since the Civil War, The Vietnam conflict. The young men's friendship ,loyalty and honor are battle hardened and tested during a tour of duty as helichopter pilots. Cole shares his thought with the reader as he struggles daily to maintain life, limb and sanity in an environment of hostility and hatred.

'Song of the Loon' is also the heartwarming story of the extraordinary love of a man for a woman. It weaves together a richly textured narrative that evokes the Majestic mystery of the American west and the traumatic reality of war into a novel that has a haunting love story at its heart. It is not just a romance novel or a war story, but a uniquely written combination of both, and will appeal to men and woman alike.
