by David Rasmussen

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
LEGEND OF THE SHAMAN is the last book in the wyakin trilogy. LEGEND OF THE WYAKIN is the first book. It introduces the story of Cortez Modrables and his animal-spirit-guide (wyakin). LEGEND OF THE DREAMER is the second book. It follows Cortez through his new life as the adopted successor of an elderly Nez Perce healer/shaman and his wife. Because Cortez is white and a Jewish immigrant; he faces many racial and religious issues throughout all three books. As an adult shaman, he is especially challenged when in love with a Christian Nez Perce young woman. Their racial, religious, social conflicts keep them apart until the crisis of the so called Nez Perce War wipes out the issues.
The last book in the Wyakin trilogy, Legend of the Shaman continues to follow the many racial and religious issues faced by Cortez Modrables. As an adult shaman, his greatest challenge comes when he falls in love with a Christian Nez Perce woman. Their racial, religious, social conflicts conspire to keep them apart—but will the Nez Perce War be their saving grace? Many books have been written about the so-called Nez Perce War and the several Nez Perce bands that made the incredible trek from central Idaho Territory and across Montana Territory to seek freedom in a place they called Grandmother's Land (now Canada). LEGEND OF THE SHAMAN's fictional characters interact with real historic persons, including Chief Joseph and the other chiefs and warriors, who participated in this tragic trek and the events leading up to it. This interaction with historic individuals, unique places and consequential events creates a riveting story of a little-known and oft-misrepresented, but important, piece of North American history.
