     Peyote Fire: Shaman of the Canyons, the new novel by Mary S. Black, tells of the  people who lived along the Rio Grande 4,000 years ago and painted the stories of their gods on the canyon walls.  Today, this area, known to archeologists as the Lower Pecos, is famous for over 300 documented rock art sites, many of which remain brilliantly colored even today with red, yellow, black and white figures. The story tells of  Deer Cloud, the artist who painted a huge mural that is  known today as the White Shaman.

Deer Cloud is urged to become a shaman himself, in order to speak directly to the gods. He must become friends with hallucinogenic spirit herbs, and visit the terrifying wolf shrines to gain his power. When he grows too strong, his enemy engineers his downfall with a dramatic challenge to call the buffalo to the people. He is mentored by the lusty female shaman Jumping Rabbit, who introduces him to the little cactus, peyote.

Based on solid research, Peyote Fire creates a world full of spirits and demons that battle for the souls of the people.   Father Sun and Mother Rain, Grandfather Fire and Grandmother Growth are honored as the great Transformers that both bring life and destroy it.

Read this story of the true Texas past. See the paintings for yourself. Listen to the stampede of the buffalo. Hear the people speak to their gods.

  1. If you need an early reviewer, please consider me. I guess I would warn you, I only give honest reviews. That said, I have read and loved all the Jean M. Auel books and loved them. I’ve lived in Texas for so long I consider myself a Texan by heart. I spent from the 3rd through 8th grades in San Antonio…ie, the grades where you learn about Texas wild flowers, Texas history, history, legends and biographies of so many people. I fell in love then and it has continued through today though many of the genres I love to read.

    I wish I could be with you in San Marcus but I am stuck in a rehabilitation facility. I hope lots of people attend and it is very successful
