Did you know that all animals communicate with each other? Well, it’s true! I know this because I learned it from a ten-year-old boy who, in 1951, was given the power to talk with them. — Dale A. Swanson
Join me in a world where all animals speak the same language through mind sharing. If you pause to consider this, you will realize that an animal witnessed nearly everything that has happened in the last 6,000-years. Unlike humans, the animals have no need nor desire to “spin” any event to modify the truth.
For only the second time in history, it became necessary for them to seek human involvement. Like the first time, without help they were powerless to solve a riddle that could stop the destruction of their homeland.
They know very well, if they ever need the help of a human, they must choose a person with a pure heart. Anything less would be disastrous to all animals.
.A loudmouthed gray squirrel named Chatter, a fidgety gopher, called Archie, a raccoon with special powers named Ring, and all the animals living on Enchanted Island select Oscar Johnson to receive the Wild Ways. They must solve a riddle before their island is destroyed and they lose everything—including their lives.
Given the power to communicate with all creatures, Oscar receives a series of clues provided by the animals and learns that a suicide thirty years in the past was not as it appeared. This draws FBI agent Jim Brandt into the story. Together, they race the clock to discover the final piece to a puzzle that reaches into the highest seats of power within the US Government.
The Mystery of the Hanging Tower is the first in my Wild Ways series. It is a fast-paced fantasy story about activities that take place on an actual island and abandoned home not far from where I grew up in Mound, MN.
If you’re looking for a pleasant read to stir your imagination, you will love Mystery of the Hanging Tower. You will quickly discover it is a bit deeper than it appears on the surface.
