Why are we here? What is our purpose? Is it confined to our life and our time, or is it woven into something much larger and much more profound?

Jeff Phillips is a blessed man with a clear vision of what he wants for his family and himself. But he has other visions, as well—visions that fill him with a longing he does not understand.

Walks Alone is blessed by the promise of a great destiny. But he has visions, too—visions that speak to the loss of a once-great culture and fill him with the fear that his destiny will not be realized.

Neither man can imagine the extent to which their lives, lived almost three centuries apart, are going to become connected.

When a fluke accident unearths a skull on Jeff's land, it opens the door to an unexpected world. Jeff and his family are drawn through it and into another time, as are a local newspaper reporter, a forensic anthropologist, and others. What they find makes the history of Jeff's land more clear while rendering its future increasingly cloudy.

By the Breath of Their People and its intertwined narratives—the stories of Jeff Phillips and Walks Alone, a Native American whose people lived along the Delaware River long before European settlers arrived—weave a tapestry of adventure, hope, and longing. As their worlds expand to include people from other cultures and walks of life, will either man find the destiny he believes to be his?

Masterfully moving between the past and present, Gil Bean's storytelling offers readers glimpses into worlds we may never know. From the peaceful bluffs above the river to the organized chaos of an unusual museum, we are swept along on a ride that we hope will not soon end.

Author Gil Bean was born in Easton, Pennsylvania—where much of By the Breath of Their People is set—and raised in nearby Phillipsburg, New Jersey. After graduating from Bowling Green State University in Ohio, he pursued a career in technology that took him to locations throughout the eastern half of the United States. He eventually returned to the Delaware River Valley, moving to the Philadelphia area in 1995. The father of four grown children, he currently lives in Mays Landing, New Jersey with his wife, Deborah.
