Description: Some truths were never meant to be known and some secrets were never meant to be shared. Montana Thomas goes in search of a father he never knew and finds the reasons behind his mother's years of silence. With his mother recently dead and not even a name to start with, Montana and his brother Dakota begin a journey to find not only their unknown father, but their culture. The Indian heritage denied to them from the moment of their births. Will Montana be able to accept his father and the truth behind his disappearance? Will he be able to accept the truths about himself once his past is revealed? Or will he wish he'd left those secrets buried.

"Which one are you?" gunman asked.
The question took me off guard, and I was reminded of my grandfather asking me the same question.
"Does it matter?" I was rewarded for my sarcasm by having the butt of the gun slammed against the back of my head. A brilliant flash of light that wasn't lightning exploded behind my eyes, and a searing pain followed a moment after that. I felt the searcher go for the wallet at my hip and waited for my head to clear.
"Montana Lee Thomas," Searcher told Gunman.
Gunman gave a satisfied grunt. "Been looking for you, boy."
"Found me." I should've just shut up, but what the hell, if they were going to kill me, I was going out my way. I felt blood, warm and thick, flow down the back of my neck and my eyes blurred. "Is it my turn to be 'it' now?" I asked.
Searcher's boot found my ribs. I grunted with the pain as bone gave way and snapped under the assault. I curled into a ball, trying to get my breath back and fight the waves of nausea that attacked. Not even Johnnie Walker was going to numb this.
