Stars Came Tumbling

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


From the streets of Shanghai to the plains of Texas, a cast of characters fighting over land and identity must sift through the cracks between myth and truth, revealing relationships and plots hidden for most of a century.   The key is in a strange, century-old map of the stars carried by a drifter traveling with a young bison named Bill who is more than he appears to be.   In this fusion of legend and history, a narrator recalling his 12th birthday chronicles what followed the drifter’s appearance—a series of events from opposite ends of the earth that evolved in extraordinary ways to shape his coming of age.  They involve the mother he imagines as a Chinese princess—a widow struggling to protect her secrets; her powerful nemesis; an itinerant artist; an imposter priest; a beautiful woman wagered as the prize in a poker contest; a legendary eccentric with a reputation for killing and stuffing her victims; and a beer-guzzling bison whose racing prowess endangers his life, as he and the boy escape together on a final, desperate journey across the plains.
