Early Reviews of LD-50
Brooke Medicine Eagle, Native American author of BUFFALO WOMAN COMES SINGING and THE LAST GHOST DANCE -- "This intriguing mystery not only entertains us, but viola!, educates us as well, about sacred ecology which must be a priority for our very survival. Jim's book helps us take our 'medicine' with some sweet, zesty organic honey!"
Dr. Richard Wade, former Director of Environmental Health for Seattle, Minnesota and California and currently consultant on bio-terrorism to the National Academy of Sciences -- "I found the characters interesting, complex and credible. They push senses to new levels and allow us to experience a pseudo-cognitive shift through their eyes. The action and suspense keeps the book moving and the reader anxious for the next page. The toxic chemistry is all too possible."
John White, former Editor-In-Chief, Countryroads Press, and former Marketing Director, Quest Books -- "This is truly a timely work that evokes many things, on many levels. I found it reminiscent of the imagery and special messages about sacred medicine and sacred ecology conveyed by Indian medicine men. The characters in this book jump back at us as exciting, real and very interesting people. We care about them immensely and experience great pleasure in playing witness to their wonderful adventures. This story will appeal to anyone seeking wisdom at the dawn of a new millennium."
Praise for James Swan's writing:
