Sample of Work
Fighting his fatigue, Tonah lay down on his
blanket and entered the trance-like state to project his awareness. He
pushed out to a power spot and sought the vantage point of a bird to survey

James Gibson grew up on a cattle ranch in western Tennessee, learning to read in his father’s Zane Grey westerns. He has researched and traveled in the American West, and in the Orient, where he found remarkable similarities in beliefs and customs. He writes in a new direction, attempting to create a culture of the mind that might have existed totally outside the purview of the Anglos settling the West.
