In war-torn Congo, Mama Nadi keeps the peace between customers on both sides of the civil war by serving everything from cold beers to warm beds. This shrewd matriarch both protects and profits from the women whose bodies have become battlegrounds “ruined” by the brutality of government soldiers and rebel forces alike. Inspired by interviews conducted in Africa, this searing play is an engrossing and uncommonly human story told with humor and song, revealing the immeasurable loss and hopelessness of war, yet finding affirmation in life and hope.

'Earth Sentinels' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jun 26, 2014

The newly released novel, 'Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators' by Shaman Elizabeth Herrera is a 'no-holds-barred piece of literary realism that is destined to become 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.' 'The premise of Shaman Elizabeth Herrera's novel is a timely one, as evidence is mounting that our over-reliance on fossil fuels, deforestation, genetically-engineered crops and other economically-driven, but environmentally-irresponsible, practices are posing an existential threat to the planet earth,' says Kevin Joseph, Amazon Vine Voice. '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! 'Simply riveting! This book is a page turner to the end. Herrera has woven a cautionary tale with threads of history, revelation and hope. Bravo!' exclaimed reviewer Richard O'Shields, channel and media professional, Everyday Connection. 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.' You can get your hands on a copy of 'Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators' at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other fine bookstores. Author Shaman Elizabeth Herrera, is a shamanic healer and author who writes life-changing books. Her stories encourage people to stretch outside their comfort zones and reexamine their own beliefs. She is also the author of 'Shaman Stone Soup,' and 'Dreams of Dying.' Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators, visionary fiction, 270 pages ISBN-13: 978-0692225318 (more...)
