As a result of huge pressure from fans of the first book in the ‘Shadows on the Trail Trilogy’, Mirador Publishing have brought forward the publication date of the second book, ‘Ghosts of the Heart’, just in time for Christmas. This latest installment picks up from where the original novel ‘Shadows on the Trail’ left off and continues saga of the Folsom People, a prehistoric tribe of hunter-gatherers.
Hailed for its accurate depiction of life on the prairies and mountains of prehistoric Colorado, Ghosts of the Heart is a fast-paced read that accurately builds on clues from the archaeological record and oral traditions practiced by early Americans.
“We are thrilled to be bringing out this latest installment so early,” said Sarah Luddington, Mirador Publishing’s Commissioning Editor. “John has a knack for bringing this era to life and combines an incredible eye for historical detail with a thoroughly engaging story.”
The story covers the tumultuous changes and disasters that plagued these primitive people and highlights the difficulties faced in trying to exist in such a hostile environment. Branney’s attention to historical accuracy is extraordinary and even includes three genuine indigenous languages within the narrative.
“I was born and raised in Wyoming and have been searching for evidence of prehistoric man for most of my life,” said John. “I’ve assembled a collection of several thousand prehistoric artifacts dating back to around 13,000 years ago in the Pleistocene Epoch.”
John Bradford Branney holds a geology degree and MBA from the University of Wyoming and the University of Colorado, respectively. John currently lives in Houston Texas with his wife, Theresa. Ghosts of the Heart is the third published book by Branney.
Mirador Publishing continue their support of new authors and are proud to present John Bradford Branney as an author to watch out for.
