Daughters of the Moon
The unique world of the Amazon Jungle is full of mystery, intrigue, and danger. It is one of the last remaining regions where natural populations of rare and endangered plants, animals, and people can still be found.
In 1976, Sophia Alexandra Winslow, a thirty-five year old New York socialite survived a plane crash in the Brazilian Jungle that landed her into the Stone Age, and a hundred light years from civilization. Near death, a tribe of nomadic Indians rescued and cared for the strange looking woman that fell from the sky.
After two failed attempts to escape, Sophia became even more of an outsider until the medicine man, who felt a spiritual connection to the white woman, became her mentor, her father, and her best friend. Surviving bouts of illnesses, periods of depression, and years of loneliness, Sophia adopted three Indian children, and was forced to commit murder in order to protect her daughter. After years of trying to prove her worthiness, she became a vital member of the Yanomama Tribe, an outstanding teacher, and a courageous healer.
Just when she thought life held no more surprises, Sophia fell in love with a white man who was lost in the jungle. When a brutal attack ended the lives of many she loved, including the Shaman and her youngest son, Buddy, Sophia returned to New York only to find she could not find happiness without her Indian family.
This is a story of a woman's courage and determination to survive. A woman whose bravery, love and strength touched so many lives that she became a living legend and the first female Shaman in the history of the Amazons.
