ABOUT THE BOOK

chasing the windTitle: Chasing the Wind
Author: Paula Scott
Publisher: West Butte Publishing
Release Date: March 20, 2018
Genre: Inspirational Historical Fiction
A beautiful, half-Indian girl raised by the Californios finds her fate intertwined with an American frontiersman haunted by his past in 1850 California.
As California comes to statehood amidst the madness of the gold rush, Isabella Vasquez must wed a buckskin-clad American who wins her in a card game. Though their union is passionate, Isabella soon finds herself abandoned in a brothel, where she rises to fame as a singer known as the Bluebird. Yet because of her Indian blood, the Bluebird will always be bought and sold in the white man’s world. When more is demanded of the Bluebird than just singing, Isabella flees to Fort Ross in search of her Russian father and her own race of people.
Peter Brondi has battled Indians all his life. The last thing he wants is a half-Indian wife. While taming the West with Kit Carson and John C. Fremont, Peter has fought the Mexican War and lost his beloved fiancée, Maggie, to his half-Indian brother, Paul. To satisfy his father’s dying wish, Peter vows to find his brother and put an end to the hate that’s between them. But when history repeats itself and Paul steals Isabella away, Peter must come to terms with his past and the animosity he holds against all Indians, including his half-brother and the wife he has forsaken.
*Chasing the Wind is the final story in the sweeping saga of California Rising, a tale of love, betrayal, and
the ties that bind brothers together and California to the nation.

EXCERPT
Take the girl and go.

The thought came out of nowhere and hit him like a warm gust of wind. The voice reminded
Peter of the intuition that had saved his life on countless occasions. A voice he couldn’t hear,
but heard all the same.

“Did you find Old Will?” Billy asked.

Peter found it hard to concentrate on what the bartender was saying. The voice deeply
disturbed him. He usually only heard it in the midst of battle. And he always did what it said. He
attributed still being on this earth to obeying that voice.

Clara had her back to Peter, so he took the opportunity to see what Belle was doing. Over on
the stairs, she was reading to the men again, but she looked up as if she knew he stared at her.
Did she recognize him without his beard and buckskins? From across the room, their gazes
collided, and he heard the voice again.

Take the wife I have given you and leave this place.
