A martial artist, survivalist, and student of military tactics, Bryan is out of sync with modern times, where these special skills aren’t necessary for daily survival. Following hypnosis for minor dental surgery, Bryan awakens naked on a hillside in a far time, drawn by an ancient Cheyenne mystic to help The People prepare to resist oppressors from the east. The warrior overcomes adversity and finds friendship, romance, and purpose in his new surroundings. Immersed in the life of The People, Brian has been learning their language and ways from a Cheyenne warrior, now his best friend, the Old Shaman, the Chief and a beautiful Cheyenne woman, his friend’s sister. He has had to overcome the hatred and aggression from a rival, a Cheyenne Dog Soldier. He begins to teach karate to White Bull and some of his friends, an act that soon has a larger and larger following until most of the young men are training with them daily.Surprised to learn that he isn’t the only visitor from another time and place, Bryan, his lady-love, and her brother, set out to find another visitor in order to learn the reasons for these visits and what the future holds for all of them. Before His Time: The Spirit Warrior is the first in a series of stories that will show the life of Native America before the advent of Europeans. Bryan, Strong Woman, White Bull, and Talks-Fast will travel to the various tribes of North America to improve the lot of the native peoples and to better prepare them for the onslaught of European immigration. They will introduce technology and improve upon the trade that already existed amongst the tribes to change the future for the people we call Indians.
