On the vast and indescribably beautiful South Rim of the Grand Canyon a young Hualapai boy faces a bleak future in 1902. River Thunder's mother has just passed into the Spirit World and his father has nothing left to give the boy except his hand carved flute and his magical gift for music. It is a time in America's history when Native American children were separated from On the vast and indescribably beautiful South Rim of the Grand Canyon a young Hualapai boy faces a bleak future in 1902. River Thunder's mother has just passed into the Spirit World and his father has nothing left to give the boy except his hand carved flute and his magical gift for music. It is a time in America's history when Native American children were separated from their loving families, tribes and even their ancient and traditional cultures and sent to distant "Indian Schools" for re-education and vocational training. River Thunder will carry his flute, courage and trusting innocence to the Hackberry Day School still standing today on old Route 66 while never once imagining how his fate will one day soar like an eagle over the magnificent Grand Canyon. His life's journey will carry River Thunder into a tender but forbidden love and the terrifying but exhilarating experience of aerial warfare fought in a World War I biplane. RIVER THUNDER was the recipient of the prestigious Western Writers of America's 2009 Spur Award for Best Western Audio Book. The story begins in the early 1900’s and ends shortly after World War I, and is set against the harsh background of Arizona’s rugged northern mountains and the magnificent Grand Canyon.

    Interesting tale about an topic we choose not to think about, great southwest settings and Gary McCarthy pull it all together in the end. Represents the WW1 era in the southwest quite well.
