Phantom Ship follows the quest and struggles of Renée Lorimer, a Seneca (Iroquois) woman who has risen to prominence in the early years of the 21st century. A Native American uprising linked to the demand for the return of sacred land throughout North America is gathering momentum. The Authorities are concerned. Renée becomes involved. Her quest entails a lengthy, increasingly dangerous pursuit. And there is a price to be paid.
“A rare and inspired piece of writing ...not only informs and entertains within the modified context of a ‘thriller,’ but provides much very important food for thought.”
—Patricia Monture-Angus, author of acclaimed Thunder in My Soul, and Journeying Forward.
“Out of darkness, Vickers sees the light of hope. A profoundly powerful work, one of spiritual aspiration and potential achievement for us all.”
—Disawin Ballard, East of the River Shawnee, Greenville, Ohio
