The Rising of Orion is a small but very powerful book about the author, conceived as a result of the rape of his unwed mother. It is the story of that mother and her family’s trials that placed her in the position of having no rational choice but to place her new baby son and a daughter of four years into the adoption system. This is an adoption story but it is much more. It is the story of this male child of part American Indian blood whose people had, unknown to him, been hunters back in time forever and of his inborn love of hunting and all creatures wild. It is the tale of his life with an adopted family of people that had never hunted or lived in wild country solely for the love of being a part of the Great Spirit of Nature. The book is a study of this young man’s struggle with the powerful DNA of his long dead Indian Grandfathers wonderfully taking control of his life and his very nature. At age forty-six the author finds his heritage after an adoption search and at last understands the man he had become.
