ThunderCloud (The Oddities of a Young Man's Journey to Manhood) - 2nd Edition Novel
(The Oddities of One Man’s Journey to Manhood)
This Mystical-Realism novel places us in an excommunicated Native-American's troubled world. His struggles in a world full of strangers - some good, some bad - in many ways mirror our own.
ThunderCloud’s outer environment forces him to confront the inner demons, real and imaginary, which have led him to his lonely situation. His internal discoveries change his entire outlook about his past, present, and future.
The oddities of other people, cultures, generational differences, and circumstances challenge and hone his ability to relate to others and to live and work within groups. ThunderCloud learns that every condition of his life reflects responsibilities either taken up or ignored. With this realization, he vows a return to his home reservation to make amends. The challenges that he faces on his return journey test his mettle, help him save his and others' lives, and bring to him life and death questions and answers that we all have asked ourselves for eons. But, will his Cherokee "Principal People" accept his return accompanied by a motley gaggle of people, a woman by his side, and the adventure-filled stories he has to tell?
That is the final question... as well, the answer that all readers would like to know!
" 'Thundercloud…' is so well written ... a great depiction of how people make mistakes and suffer consequences for their actions. All the drama that gets thrown into those situations is here! I love that the author chose a Native-American Cherokee for his protagonist because the Cherokee Principal People are a spiritual yet highly victimized group. Using this backdrop, Kule brings a deeper flavor to humanity.”
