Backtrack: The Scout’s Story

Clairvoyant Trackers are valuable resources for law enforcement agencies and the United States Government because of their unique ability to hunt down criminals and missing persons using the specially developed powers of their minds. In the beliefs of the American Indians, experts at tracking game and enemies, the seventh child of a seventh child may be gifted with second sight and can be trained to become a Tracker.

The Trackers Team is made up of five unique descendants of legendary trackers from different Indian tribes who possess the rare gift of second sight and its psychic powers. Their stories are chronicled by an unknown blind girl from Central America who sees them in her visions.

BACKTRACK is The Scout’s Story. NOAH LIGHTFOOT, the youngest member of the elite psychic Trackers Team, is a remote viewer with a photographic memory. Noah learns that an evil shape-shifting outlaw has been using highly-developed extrasensory powers to achieve personal gain and murder by backtracking into the past to alter the present—a practice forbidden to all legitimate Trackers. During the investigation, Noah and his mentor, Liahona Thistleseed, discover that one member of their team is a traitor. Noah and the rest of the Trackers must find the Outlaw and the Traitor and put time back on its natural course.

Set in rural Northwest Florida amid country living and Florida State University football, BACKTRACK: The Scout’s Story highlights the customs and ceremonies of the Florida Tribe of Eastern Creek Indians. The novel is endorsed by Dr. Andrew Boggs Ramsey, known as Tuskie Mahaya Haco, the former Principal Chief of the Apalachicola Band of Creeks of the Muskogee Creek Nation. According to Dr. Ramsey, “I find the facts related to Muskogee Indian customs and rituals to be authentic. One can learn much about the Creek Indian ways and spirit.”
