Tom Stohlgren's Severed Treaty packs a wallop-written in alternating chapters that track the survival of past and present Native Americans, it yields unnerving insights into the nature of American greed and violence. Wes Powell is a professor and climate predictor in Colorado. Powell learns of the murder of an old classmate and Indian activist, Johnny Greyfeather and then receives a handwritten copy of a Cheyenne treaty in the mail sent by Greyfeather. But the CEO of California Water and Trade (CWT), Clayton Wegner, doesn't want this document to surface-its discovery will mean huge losses for the corporate giant. Powell becomes caught up in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse and swept up in an investigation that points to murder, extortion and strong-arm tactics by CWT and seemingly unconnected events that transpired over 140 years ago. Meanwhile Powell's got more trouble-he's being stalked by two women-a graduate student and a beautiful attorney who has her own political agenda. Stohlgren weaves a riveting tale with a gripping plotline that moves seamlessly from one time period to another. This first-rate action-adventure is a significant piece of fiction that reveals how the original Americans were cheated out of more than just their birthright. Author Bio: Tom Stohlgren is a writer, senior scientist, and research ecologist. He has published over 150 scientific papers, a textbook, and has written two novels and screenplays. He's finishing up the sequel to Severed Treaty and lives with his wife and family in Colorado.
