Stone introduces Edwin, a young man who must discover his family’s past if he is to have any future. Edwin learns of his ancestor Stone, a young Plains Cree man, who came of age in the early 19th century. Following a vision quest, Stone aspires to be like his older brother, Bear, a member of the Warrior Society. But when Bear is tragically killed during a Blackfoot raid, Stone, the best shot and rider in his encampment, must overcome his grief and avenge his brother’s death. Only then can he begin a new life with his bride, Nahoway. It is Stone’s story that drives Edwin to embark on his own quest.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
First, I must give credit to the amazing artist, Scott Henderson, who added his talent to this amazing story. The black and white graphics are stunning and help to make this graphic novel a huge success. But, let’s not forget the also amazing author who created this story.
David Alexander Robertson…
I’ve been following David’s work for a while now and have been acquiring everything of his he’s written. The man is very talented, very unique and has a truly inspirational author’s voice that needs to be heard.
Sometimes, these smaller books go unnoticed and that’s a shame. There’s definitely something to what he’s created that must not be missed by readers.
I would love to see him create a larger project one day, just to see what he does with it.
I can’t say enough about both talented men.
