About the Book

When the young Comanche halfbreed was recruited by the U.S. Army Rangers, little did Yellowsnake know where the fortunes of war would take him.

Once Colonel Lincoln spotted Yellowsnake and his survival instincts, their lives would be enjoined for many years to follow. Yellowsnake, under the guidance of his wise Colonel soon wreaked havoc upon the Viet Cong.

After his Viet Nam army tour, Yellowsnake suddenly found himself employed by the CIA, and once again thrust back into the jungle as an invisible operative for the Company.

From the early moments of his life, his spirit and soul were being closely watched over by Shahana, a mysterious Yaqui Medicine Woman.

She had prophesized the terror and danger which would become part of Yellowsnake's life, and before the tragic accident which Shahana had foreseen could claim Yellowsnake's life, the old woman would give her last breath to save him.

After his miraculous recovery, the healing warrior's path crosses that of Jake Montana, an adventure lover and treasure hunter who soon forms a lifelong bond with Yellowsnake.

Their adventurous treasure search takes them deep into the mountains of Arizona in pursuit of one of the fabled Peralta treasure caches.

Yellowsnake's perilous life had seen him working covertly for Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua and for the sinister Manuel Noriega under the close scrutiny of the CIA. However, he knew that with the help of Shahana's watchful spirit he would someday enjoy the company of those he trusted and be blessed with adventure on safer ground.

About the Author

Jake Conrad was born and raised in the upper Midwest surrounded by water. Whenever time will allow, Jake and his dear friend Yellowsnake seek out new adventure in the rugged high country.

The Author is a former Marine and after meeting Yellowsnake and hearing his life story, he gained an early appreciation for the harrowing experiences which began to unfold. Conrad felt compelled to write a story which would reveal the remarkable life, and near death of a modern day warrior. The adventure carries him into the war torn mountains of Vietnam, then weaves its way through the rugged and mysterious mountains of Arizona. After hearing Yellowsnake recount his terror filled life, Conrad had no doubt that the mysterious Medicine woman had indeed seen him through the ordeal.

'I found YELLOWSNAKE, SON OF PROPHECY to be an action packed story from beginning to end. It is a recommended 'Must Read.' The man and the book are both exciting.
