'Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators' by Shaman Elizabeth Herrera is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jul 18, 2014

· Did you know that fracking is linked to earthquakes and is destroying our water supplies? (1) · Did you know that there is no safe way to mine, store, or process nuclear materials used in power plants? (2) · Did you know there have been over 270,000 suicides in India by farmers who used GMO seeds with devastating results? (3,4) · Did you know that the deforestation of the Amazon rainforest is altering our weather? (5) · Did you know there were at least 7,662 spills, blowouts, leaks and other mishaps in 2013 in 15 top US states for onshore oil and gas activity? (6) The newly released novel, 'Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators' by Shaman Elizabeth Herrera is a 'no-holds-barred piece of literary realism' that dives head first into the most pressing issues affecting our planet while at the same time instills hope and offers 'a classic model of wisdom for living harmoniously on earth,' according to Mark Champion of OurHealingMatters.com, 'On occasion, we all read a book that we know will mark the time of our age. Earth Sentinels' message is every bit as telling and accurate as Animal Farm and Fahrenheit 451. It is a succulent portion of cold, hard truth played out with characters you share affinity with, understand and love.' 'This compelling adventure shows that our struggles around the world are connected and that ordinary people have the power to change the world for the better.' Dr. Margaret Flowers, PopularResistance.org Earth Sentinels begins with the fallen angel Bechard somberly observing the world being destroyed by mankind's greed, corruption and indifference. Realizing drastic measures are needed, Bechard begins searching the globe for people who might join his quest to save the planet. It doesn't take long for the fallen angel to find 17-year-old Zachary, whose family's organic farm is being ruined by fracking; Haruto, living in Fukushima, Japan, where the nuclear meltdown is raging out of control; Mahakanta, a cotton farmer in India, who used GMO seeds with devastating results; the Amazonian tribe members, Conchita and her father, Pahtia, fighting against intruders illegally tearing down their rainforest; and the Bear Claw First Nation Tribe who are dealing with an unstoppable oil spill that is ruining their traditional hunting grounds. Intriguing blue doors and ethereal mists beckon the characters to the spirit realm where they finally meet the mastermind Bechard to form an alliance. Excitement builds when the world's Governments are faced with the Earth Sentinels' demands, sent on behalf of Mother Earth who cannot speak for herself. As events unfurl and countries retaliate, the readers ride a roller coaster through the supernatural. Laine Cunningham, award-winning author, stated, 'This is one of those books that's going to stand alongside classics. Drawing from Native American wisdom and the beliefs of a world filled with respect for nature and its spiritual elements, Herrera has created a global book of wisdom for a global world.' Get your hands on a copy of 'Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators' at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other fine bookstores and find out how you can make a difference in our world too. http://www.amazon.com/Earth-Sentinels-The-Storm-Creators/dp/0692225315/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top About the Author: Shaman Elizabeth Herrera, is a shamanic healer, poet, activist and author who writes life-changing books.
