Stones (Shining Light's Saga Book 3) Kindle Edition
Stones by Ruby Standing Deer
Evolved Publishing brings you another rare glimpse into ancient American Indian culture, with the third book in the Shining Light's Saga series by award-winning author Ruby Standing Deer. [DRM-Free]
[Historical Fiction, American Indian, Cultural Heritage]
In Book 3 of the saga of Shining Light’s people, the reader is swept into the changing world of ancient Native America. The peace that Shining Light and his family have enjoyed in the Land of the Tall Trees is shattered by his young daughter. Dove’s dream of mustangs, and of a young American Indian boy named Singing Stone, and his family known as the Mustang People, will not let her rest.
The coming of the wild mustangs blessed Singing Stone’s people with a better way of life, and now these beautiful creatures are being slaughtered. Spurred on by the discovery of the yellow stone, the Hairy-Faces join with the Likes to Fight People to drive out other bands. What better way to weaken the Mustang People than to capture or kill the mustangs? Singing Stone and his family fight to protect them, but what can three do against many?
Far away in the Land of Tall Trees, Dove still dreams of the mustang boy. Certain that her destiny is to be with him, young Dove begs her father to take her to him, back out onto the dangerous grasslands. Will they arrive in time to save Singing Stone and his people?
When an attack by the Likes to Fight People leaves all of their possessions destroyed, Singing Stone and his family join the Blue Sky People, and together they become the Blue Sky Mustang People. With winter and danger looming ever closer, the mustangs and their protectors must keep moving, even though it is the season to stay in one place. Can they stop the Likes to Fight People and the Hairy-Faces from killing the mustangs?
Be sure to check out the first two books in this remarkable series, Circles and Spirals.

River Song’s small family has dedicated their lives to protecting their four-legged relatives, the mustangs. From the very first lines, I could smell the grass, hear the animals, and feel the pounding of the hearts of those who loved the mustangs. The mustangs are drawn with great detail, accurate detail.
Far away in the Forest of Tall Trees a young girl dreams of mustangs and of a young boy named Singing Stone.
Ruby Standing Deer weaves the story of how these two groups of Native Americans come together, affecting not only the fates of the humans, but also the fates of the wolves and mustangs they love.
This book is more than just a story--though it is certainly a great story. Without sex and without graphic violence, Ruby Standing Deer depicts the hardships, the dangers, the joys and the loves of a people who believed that all of life was sacred. She gives the reader an insight into a culture and a people. This story, like Circles, Book 1, and Spirals, Book 2, is a story of love triumphant; a story of deep spirituality that infuses everyday occurrences.
If there was a higher rating than five stars, this book would certainly get it.
I am an animal lover, and a visual person. I literally felt my heart in my throat as the heard of Mustangs were introduced into this story on the first page. The "Hairy Faces" and the "Likes to Fight People" are trying to kill off the mustangs and Singing Stone is determined to protect them.
Dove, "Shining Light's daughter" who lives far away in "The Land of the Tall Trees" begins to have visions of Singing Stone and the Mustangs in her dreams. From here her quest to find the Mustang boy begins and so does their journey of young love and all its complications.
This is a powerful journey and I found the characters spoke to me. Like "Circles" and "Spirals", it is all about tradition and valuable life lessens missing from the majority of our lives today. The human and animal bond, the respect for earth, the vital connection of all living things, and the interactions between the elders and the children is priceless. It is a spiritual journey, but an easy read. It is chock full of humour and wit and teaches us to listen and follow our hearts, so many of the things we lack in the world today, at least in my opinion.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Native American history and learning about life in a much simpler time in the form of an exceptionally well written story. My only advice would be to make sure you don't have too many things planned while you are reading this book as you definitely won't want to put it down!
