Hunters & Hearts, by James and John Iverson

16 August 2010

Hunters & Hearts is an epic tale of adventure, friendship, loss, and redemption. The novel is based upon the extraordinary true exploits of Emil Iverson – explorer, athlete, head coach of the Chicago Blackhawks, and  the most successful coach in Minnesota Gopher Hockey history – winning seven national championships during his place at the helm.

The journey begins in the Minnesota/Canadian borderlands and chronicles the epic struggles of the Ojibwa people, a shaman named “Two Rivers” and his Raven Spirit Guide. The Ojibwa tribe is decimated by disease brought to the region by Europeans. The few survivors are driven from their village at gunpoint and their lodges burned to the ground. Two Rivers spends several years in self-imposed isolation as he plans his revenge and an eventual return to the village in order to properly bury his people. His hatred is tamed by the most unexpected occurrence. Just as he is about to be murdered by a ruthless bounty hunter a white man steps in to save him, sparking off a friendship that leads to Emil’s 1927 expedition to find the Lost Tribe.

Hunters and Hearts is more than an ordinary adventure novel. Much of the dialog and narrative is voiced by woodland spirits, the sun, moon, and earth, and many of the living creatures that call the forest “home.” <>
