About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

An aspiring anthropologist journeys to Mexico and becomes entangled in a tale of the Ancient Maya, amidst the Late Classic political upheaval, where foreigners infiltrate cities and social changes break up economies and families. In the midst of this turmoil, a young woman struggles to make her way, haunted by visions and a mysterious summons from a Panther Spirit. Raised to value the old traditions, unable to accede to her husband's heartless demands to participate in bloody rituals, she flees with her infant son into the unknown, discovering lost kindred and caring helpers, and learning to walk in the Otherworld in search of the key to her family's destiny. When she faces the ultimate challenge, will the Panther Spirit's power enable her to overcome it?

Deftly constructed at 296 pages, Call of the Panther: A Novel of the Ancient Maya is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction/ Historical category.
