436 pages5 hours


Steeped in authentic cultural traditions and spiritual beliefs, this rich and wonderful historical novel follows the times and trials of a family band of the Schi’tsu’umsh Indians, now called the Coeur d’Alene Tribe in northern Idaho. Through a boy named Sun Bear and his sister, Rainbow Girl, the band’s oral stories are told as it struggles to hold onto what is precious and sacred about life.
The story spans several generations of the family, beginning in the early 1700s, before they had experienced widespread contact with European settlers. Set within the tribe’s originally claimed territory Red Thunder reveals a time when the tribe was governed by laws based exclusively on traditional teachings and the rules of nature.
