Red Thunder is a memoir of a People, the Schee-tsu-umsh Indians, now called the Coeur d'Alene Tribe in Northern Idaho, USA. The story follows several generations of the tribe from birth to adulthood, old age to death and explores the themes of courage, family, love, tragedy and hope.

The author has translated genuine oral histories and incorporated them into the lives of Sun Bear, Rainbow Girl and the tribe of Schee-tsu-umsh Indians. This authentic work displays the rich cultural teachings behind Native American life in a very real and relevant sense that is applicable to our times.
