Death’s Drummer by author David Leonard spans years of discovery and obsession. The character walks the thin line between life and his many encounters with death.
Set in the war era, the boy’s thirst for curiosity and exploration is defined by the impact of the war in his grown up years.
And as he gains knowledge, under the tutelage of a professional, his desire of death and violence is mounting.
Forming ties and relationships and losing them in the end manifest in his engrossed craving for travel and journey as well as finding some exquisitely-crafted pieces of gold and other minerals.
Leonard brings forth a book that synthesizes war, death, violence and even several cases of loss all occasioned by a strong emotion.
About the Author:
Mr. Leonard was raised on the Great Divide on a remote Colorado ranch in the 1940's and 50's. His father died leaving ten children. His mother--with the children's help--farmed the land, took care of the livestock and survived the terrible winters. Finally, she sold the ranch and took the children to Oregon where most graduated from college.
