TITLE: The Ancestor Stone SUBTITLE: AUTHOR NAME: Deborah Higgns DIMENSIONS: 6" x 9" BOOK SUBJECT MATTER: Read description for details of what should be designed. Take a piece and go with it. Book Description: Army Captain Serafina Stillwater, Apache Mescalero Indian, knew she was born to be a warrior. She lists a bloodline back to Geronimo. Upon graduation from West Point, she is pronounced a warrior and presented with a piece of meteorite called the Ancestor Stone; a stone her people have held sacred for centuries. A stone believed to have the power to bring a warrior or his spirit home, no matter where he roams. Warrior she may be, but the Army’s ban on females fighting has left her a SERE’s instructor. When a video from a Mexican cartel meant for ISIS is intercepted and sent to the President and Joint Chiefs of Staff, her duty station changes. Serafina becomes lead instructor in training a multi taskforce, from all military branches, and Border Patrol agents in how to fight invasion from along our border with Mexico. Within a week of beginning the training, Sera and her men are ambushed by the cartel, accompanied by ISIS operatives. Only Serafina and three others survive but left for dead in the desert. Diagnosed with PTSD, Sera remains in a coma. Her great-grandfather, an Apache shaman, says she needs an Apache Spirit Walk, to connect with her ancestors who can show her how to heal. He gets permission from Washington and Sera begins an Oz-like journey inside her mind back to her ancestors. A journey no woman has ever made because no woman has ever been named a warrior of her tribe.
