Pachou is a member of the Chauquapehkwinah Tribe, which is one of the first tribes to exist upon Earth Mother. Pachou has no written documents of religion to limit her view of the Great Spirit. The Great Spirit always rests within Pachou's heart. Knowledge can only come to her through the eyes, the ears, and the hands that will unveil all that surrounds her. Wisdom is bestowed upon her by the Earthworn Great One, the eldest member of the Tribe. Pachou seeks to leave the Tribe and find the river's end, a dream never to be attained by the aged one. Her journey presents curiosity, danger, and friendship all to be sketched upon the silent walls of time. Could Pachou have really existed? Will her Spirit of Soul never die? That is for the reader to decide.

Author Biography

Karen S. Garner is a woman of humble beginnings, raised in a one-bedroom, one-bathroom house along with three older brothers and her parents. In the winter, she and her brothers slept on roll-a-way beds in sleeping bags in a single-car garage with a dirt floor. In the summer, blankets were placed over clothes lines and poles to provide cover for outdoor sleeping. She was never aware of her family's poverty, because of the love surrounding her. She was born and raised in Nevada where the mountains rest tall to the West and the colors of the desert are exhibited in fullness to the East. Music and writing are her primary hobbies. She is the baritone part in a barbershop quartet that sings for free to disabled, ill, or homebound individuals. Karen's favorite book is Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach. Her retirement years have been spent in volunteer work and writing books. You can contact her at
