Jim Pinto Blogs - Update
I haven't published any blogs recently because I was on vacation - Canadian Rocky Mountaineer and America's National Parks. During our travels we visited Native American areaswhich ignited my fire for writing a book: Whitefeather - A Native American becomes President of the United States. For the next few months, at least, I'll be completely absorbed till the book is complete.
