Genre: Fiction/Westerns
Format: Ebook

Thunder in the Wind is a historical novel concerning the assimilation reservation American Indians underwent at the turn of the twentieth century. The first part of the work describes how the Assiniboine, and one family in particular, deal with the onslaught of a society that not only was technologically superior, but also thought itself so morally superior it treats the tribe as if it was a hopeless dependent. The second part follows the exploits of the main character as he tries to unite the Plains, Great Basin, and Southwestern tribes in revolt, not to defeat the whites, but to scare them so badly they would restore to the Indians the selfhood they had stolen. Miskaw deals with the same trials Tecumseh experienced early in the previous century while uniting the tribes east of the Mississippi and, in dealing with them learns several truths about himself and the human condition. If not for hubris, the outcome of his endeavor may have been dramatically different.


I'm a Yankee who became a damn Yankee when I wouldn't leave the South. When I did leave it, was for overseas where I comfortably acquired the moniker of "yank". I have two bachelor degrees. The one in geology I use to support myself, the one in history just showed I am curious about human nature. This curiosity culminated in Thunder in the Wind after I found out about a Cree named Almighty Voice while I was engaged in geologic fieldwork in Montana. His revolt almost united the tribes. I was an Army 1st Lieutenant, lived for golf as a youth and got to play on the University of Houston golf team, and was an Eagle Boy Scout. I've been writing books for over two decades, getting only to the agent level. At present, one agent is peddling a novel I wrote about the oilfield. I was a well-site geologist for fourteen years and a petroleum engineer, mostly overseas, for seven years.

It is simple and yet difficult to figure out if there is no proper way to discover one self. Sometimes, you may have everything in life but you are still feeling that something is missing within you. Well, that is exactly the point in life when we need to find our life purpose through self-discovery process.

Author: Ted Bagley
Publisher: XLibrisUS
Genre: Political Science

The Interview:

Can you please tell us about the book?
This book was written to educate people on the importance of participating in the voting process. We can no longer sit on the sidelines criticizing when we chose not to participate in the process. Having the wrong person sitting in the White House has long reaching effects on the direction of the country and how we are viewed by the outside world. For the first time in our lifetime we are not looked on favorably as the leader of the world. 

Who or what is the inspiration of the book?
The current failure of this Trump administration and the lack of participation in the downstream election at the state and local level.

What cause are you most passionate about?
Police reform. Primarily because of the number of unarmed black and brown people who are killed needlessly. 

Do you have a ritual when finishing a project?
No, not particularly.

Who has influenced you in your writing career?
Dr. Roosevelt Thomas, Daniel Coyle, Alex Haley and Vicky Stringer. 

What are your long term goals?
Total retirement and travelling once COVID-19 is over




Meet the Author:
The author is writing his fourth novel ,The Demolition of Democracy, to give substance to what he sees as a threat to the stability of our country by the current Trump administration.
