When Arizona ranch owner, Adam Blake, falls in love with Priscilla WhiteCloud, sister of his Navajo foreman, the catalyst for the terrible consequences of their union is set in motion. Amid the historical and political background of the American Southwest in the early to mid-1900's, SpiritPath paints a fascinating picture of the world of that time, encompassing events leading to World War1, the pursuit of the Mexican bandit, Pancho Villa, after his murderous raids on American soil, the horrendous conditions of the Mission directed Indian schools, the fledgling aeronautics industry, the 1929 Stock Market Crash, coinciding with the Government mandated Stock Reduction Plan, so devastating to the herding culture of the Navajo People. Compelling love stories, interwoven with diverse yet profound values, both Anglo and Navajo, evolve as the children and grandchildren of Adam and Priscilla, seek resolutions to their personal conflicts and discover their individual paths to enduring love and spiritual harmony.
SpiritPath is Pat's first novel. A California transplant, she now lives in the Rogue River area of Southern Oregon where she writes with her Golden Retriever wrapped around her feet and her cat competing for the keyboard.
