KINGSTON, N.Y. - July 20, 2014 - PRLog -- Sunbury Press has released Paul Argentini's latest novel "The Spirits' Cabin on Lake Eagle Talon," a WW2-era coming-of-age tale set in the woods of upstate New York

About the Book:
THE SPIRITS' CABIN ON LAKE EAGLE TALON is a story of Native American Lore, a teenage couple’s abiding love, and ordinary people who are called upon to do extraordinary deeds.

Excerpt:

1940

The cabin was first a put-up-in-a-hurry forest lean-to before it started to look like a refuge a desperate hiker would seek out on a rainy, lightning-filled night. Joe Caruso wondered if some long-ago design had him decide to build it unknowingly in front of the site of an ancient Indian ceremonial fire pit complete with mystery and portent. Maddy Malloy had no such doubts. She knew the first time she put foot on the cabin’s site alongside Lake Eagle Talon, which was hidden in the lush, rolling Bekshire Hills of western Massachusetts. According to her sensations, its beginnings and construction lay in a design and plan arranged eons before. When Joe asked her how she knew that, she told him by the same knowledge that told her they knew each other in another time. They had only to take care they did not let their attraction to one other displease too much the jealous ancients.

“Do you feel it?”

“What?”

“Shhhh! Shhhh! The sensations. Hold my hand. I’m getting goose bumps.”

Joe wrinkled his brow, looked around slowly. “Like we’re not alone ... ?”

“Yes. Like I feel sometimes when I’m in church. I get lost and this sensation comes over me.”

“Like someone is standing right in front of me, nose to nose.”

“Like ... another dimension ... ?”

Joe felt the awe engulf him just as it did the first night he spent in the lean-to. He sat cross-legged Indian style in front of the fire. He stared off to the side. The sight made him blink rapidly and open his eyes widely. A rattlesnake was coiled, its rattle clicking. Shika-shika-shika-shika.

Joe surprised himself. He felt not an iota of fear.

He folded his hands in front of him, and felt compelled to welcome the visitor. He could not speak. He simply nodded his head. It was as if the snake was expected.

Joe had no idea how long the snake was there. He had nodded off, then awoke to find it gone. Joe smiled, stretched out, and went to sleep.

“Maddy, do you feel as if we have been transported to another dimension?”

“Whatever it is, it is so weird. Do you still feel it?”

“Yes! Like it’s a shroud covering us with magic spirits ...”

“Like we were meant to discover it so we could be guided ...”

“Yes, to acknowledge all its portents and blessings ...”

“Yes!”

“And tells us to follow the word! It says we are to take off all our clothes ...”

“Crazy shit!” she said to Joe and didn’t talk to him for the next three days.
