Gypsy Quill’s new book delivers remarkable and harrowing story

Historically accurate and incredibly intense, ‘The Canyon’s Shadow’ highlights the triumph of hope and the indomitability of the human spirit

Phoenix, Ariz. – From author Gypsy Quill comes “The Canyon’s Shadow,” the first of a trilogy. This book is a boldly lyrical work of art that is loaded with beautiful epic poetry, which helps tell the story. It is based on a true story that touches on alcoholism, drugs and violence and a testimony that the spirit of Christ lives, without being openly and devoutly religious. Set against the backdrop of the Grand Canyon, it is essentially two stories stitched together by their common denominator, The Colorado River. The way they are interwoven to make a whole cloth—it makes for an utterly riveting read.

Groundbreaking and historically rich, “The Canyon’s Shadow” is a hybrid of two true-life stories weaved into one. At the heart of this story are two individuals who arrive at the Canyon in two different eras of time. While the Grand Canyon remains the same, the civilization around her has visibly changed. It uncovers a relic of time which reveals an important chunk of history left out — one that numerous cultures of society need(s) to know.

In this book, readers are introduced to Poe Walker and Lieutenant Joseph Christmas Ives. Poe, on the one hand, is a man who, at the height of his musical career, goes deaf. Hapless as he is, he finds himself traveling a road away from the limelight and into a dark world of drugs and violence but eventually takes back control of his life! On the other hand is Ives, an army lieutenant who is ordered by the secretary of war in Washington to lead an expedition during the Indian Wars in 1857. He narrates the adventure up river in a steamboat to the time he leads soldiers on horseback to continue the journey on land moving supplies to Fort Defiant.

An excerpt from the book:

“There runs a raging river racing madly in an onslaught of nature and vigorously thrashing against every curvature abroad. Like a pulsating rhythmical unit of poetry it dances in the gleam of sunlight! Finally, in a crescendo it reaches climax into the Grand Finale’. Thence symphonic waves dynamically break down slowly, in a regression to its settled and peaceful calm. Embraced by serenity I suddenly begin to realize I'm being seduced by—nature’s sensuality. The river’s sound and fury draws me to it. Her lavish spirit becomes a part of me!”

How their lives are fated to converge, readers can find out in this stellar novel that highlights the triumph of hope and the indomitability of the human spirit. “The Canyon’s Shadow” is a must-read for history books and readers who want to learn hidden-truth from the past, poetry lovers, and those who like success stories.

THE ADVENTURE—in the ‘EYES of the RAPTOR’ the story becomes more intense, as theadventure continuesto takeyou beyond the benchmark of your wildest imagination . . .



THE JOURNEY— where will the journey lead to next? Who will die? Who will live? This story is full of surprises and takes you through many changes, some of which are extreme. As a little girl Monet began to develop a mental disorder—which did not become apparent until later on. As a woman, her problem gone untreated some of the time, no one but her father knew what problem she had! Some associated it with her cocaine addiction, one of which didn’t help the matter. Her son Aaron did not trust even one word she said.

Excerpt from the book:

“My Daddy, is not . . . alive,” crying he sighs, and continues with teary eyes and a choked up vocal biting his bottom lip, “My mom is a liar!”

Monet reached the roof top and stopped to take a big saving-breath. Yelling through the door “Aaron—my Sunflower, I’m not . . . lying! Please believe me, your Daddy is alive!”

About that time Aaron turned toward the ledge of the roof and approached . . .





THE RIVER—Poe Walker finds out the hardway … “life is a river that runs through ‘Time’s Shadow’” … and like a river … it is full of twistsand turns. Some for the BEST and some for the WORSE—and then there is a RUT—between the two! But through all the windings of the Grand Deluge … he finds there is a new meaning to his life and more of a reason to continue to move on from alcoholism and drug addiction.





THE GRAND CANYON—In Poe’s research, hefinds The Ives Expedition 1857-58, takes you on a mule train trail that narrows to only enough room for their feet to stand on. A mile above the Canyon floor the fear has the men drop to their knees to crawl, as they hold on to the cliff walls, squeamish to the brink of passing out! But they continue down into theabyss of TheGrand Canyon, where they visit Prominent Indian nations. Further along the expedition they travel on to discover the Seven Cities of the Moquis—which saves the soldiers from death!











To find out how ‘EYES OF THE RAPTOR’ weaves two stories together like grapevines … you’ll have to read this stellar novel.
