Bowed to the Dragon: A Generational Search for Meaning (Paperback)
Bowed to the Dragon sheds light on the tapestry of stories, beliefs and addictions passed down through five generations of women. These universal themes go far back in history, their origins lost in time.
Kate Shannon researched the life of her grandmother, Clara Adelle Morris, and wrote a true account of a woman living on the fringe of a bygone era.
Tracing the paths of her Colorado ancestors, 1850s mining emigrants from Canada and Cornwall, England, the origin of the author's own struggles became clear.
After the death of her daughter, Kate pulled away from life to deal with her grief. She found a higher road, making new choices, which continued to exert a positive influence on the lives of her descendants.
