Beyond Words: Getting to the Heart of Communication in One Or More Languages for the 21st Century
The Journada Del Muerto (The Journey Of The Dead Man) begins where Black Hand Over Kansas ended. While each story can be enjoyed individually, a prior reading of Black Hand Over Kansas provides in-depth background. The final book in the Black Hand Trilogy, The Victors, will follow.
In 1865, Malcolm and Steffi Frazier acquire ownership in a potentially valuable Arizona copper mine. With high hopes, they leave Kansas for Arizona to claim their fortune. It will prove to be a journey destined to test the outer limits of their sanity and their will to survive. They'll travel the Santa Fe Trail to New Mexico, then on to the unforgiving Journada Del Muerto.
You'll ride the trails and live the life of terror, fear, and love, as the adventurers rise again and again to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. You'll plunge into the Canyon Of Bones to discover how it got its name--then hear throbbing war drums under a darkened moon and share the wrenching pain in a mother's heart as she prepares her tiny sons to meet a savage horde.
In this story of non-stop adventure, a never-to-be-forgotten cast of characters will come together, form unbreakable bonds, and change their lives forever.
You'll meet Ben Wang and Su Chang, Fraziers' unlikely partners, who are running for their lives; Angus McDougal, the giant blacksmith; Peg Leg Charlie, the wise prospector; Kai Mang, ruler of The Tong Of The Black Hand; Magda, the beautiful Gypsy girl; Dr. Maroni, who holds the key to a Mexican treasure; Naije, the Apache chief, and his traitorous brother, Black Dog; Shorty Jollie and Tall Ned, Cornish miners who become heroes on the high seas; Harrison Hathaway, the British investor; Yellow Wolf, a Yaqui chief; Montoya, the Comanchero; Standing Bear, the Comanche; Sheng Tai, the eunuch; Lupe, Carmen and Rosa from Nogales; and others who come together to provide the rich fabric to weave the tightly knit story into one of epic proportions.
