It began on the banks of the Ohio River in 1844
when Clayton Donegal and the renowned painter George Albert Spencer set
out to explore the new American frontier. It ended a year later at the
gates of Hell. What they encountered in-between became the stuff of
legend. One of the most amazing Western stories youíll ever read; a tale
of noble friends and savage enemies; of love lost, life, death and the
totality of karmic destiny. A metaphysical journey into the wilderness
of the American soul.
The Cheyenne Dog Soldier Tree Owl and legendary
Mountain Woman Annie Kestrel were among Donegal and Spencerís many, odd
traveling companions. Jewish immigrants, African slaves, Indian fights,
buffalo stampedes and the honest and unexpected sexuality of the era. A
tale of enduring love, allegory and religious revelation. Transmuting
the philosophy of George Berkeley and the Greek Classics. Journey into
the Akashic Records and the invisible space between dimensions.
Inspired hallucination rooted in the reality from
which it was drawn. The experiences of Clayton Donegal as taken from his
19th Century journals. An adventure like no other.
