Only the Wind Remembers
Making peace with the past...
Discovering the only love that heals...
Ishi: the last of his tribe, utterly alone in the white man's world.
Allison: abandoned as a child, haunted by dreams of a mother whose face she cannot recall.
In 1911, the last Yahi Indian walked out of the woods and into modern civilization for the first time. Driven from a life of hiding, Ishi longs for one thing: to tell a secret tale, a fable of his people that only he knows. Allison Morgan understands how important it is to obey the tenets of propriety, especially when her anthropologist husband is entrusted with the care of the last "Stone Age" Indian in North America. Yet something about Ishi stirs echoes of memories long forgotten, compelling her to defy the rules. Secretly, she learns Ishi's language. And then the tale begins, bringing with it the promise of hope long abandoned. But in the midst of renewed dreams, will a tangle of hidden motives, personal insecurities, and long-masked secrets destroy her once chance to discover the truth?
Based on actual historical events, Only the Wind Remembers invites you to a time when everything was not as it seemed, when a simple tale held the key to hope, when only the wind remembered what it meant to be free.
