Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default A request for Amazon.com feedback

It occurred to me that it would be good if people considering whether or not to buy Shirley's daughter's book be able to see Shirley's response on the page for the book itself. So, without speaking to anyone whomever connected to this website, I spent parts of yesterday and early this morning placing Shirley’s response, attributed to her, on 9 out of the 10 Amazon websites worldwide, along with Barnes and Noble and Alibris so that it would be the earliest 'review.' I wasn’t planning on mentioning this to anyone until I saw (and was really unprepared for) the negativity of the responses to this; perhaps I am naïve in presuming that the response of the person about whom a book has been written would be, in any way really, ‘unhelpful.’

If you are already a customer of Amazon, please feel free to log in and look at the quote, deciding for yourself whether or not it is 'helpful.' I placed the quote on my own Amazon account as I wanted to make no bones about the fact that I was a real person; if an Amazon customer checks my reviews, they can tell that I have chosen to review items for almost ten years. In my opinion, whether or not the second review posted chronologically (the person who created the five star review) is, perhaps, a fiction of the publisher - a "Timothy Kash" - I leave for you to decide; as it happens, "Mr. Kash" has never chosen to review a work on Amazon previously. Please feel free to decide whether his review is helpful to you or not, too. I am relieved, as I write this, that two more reviews have been written with more honesty and candor than the second review.

Attention Rob!

As you suspected.....Timothy Kash is the brother-in-law of the co-author, Frederick Stroppel. His wife's name is Liz Kash Stroppel and her brother is Tim. Hence....possibly the 2nd 5 star review....elizaflower. Not sure, but highly possible!!
I do not have an Amazon account, so I did not write this info, I could surely create one though.....or you can go for it.
It is good thing I have naturally low blood pressure.

Default Thank you all, very much

Lura - I deeply appreciate your support; I read your response with a sigh of relief that I was not alone in this.

Robin - Thank you, very much, for adding your review.

Shelley - The information you mention is VERY good to know. I did a quick search last night and couldn't find direct confirmation of this so I'll continue to look into this after work tonight. Please feel free to mention it yourself in the meantime if you open an Amazon account.

Rick - Thanks, as always.

You planted a good seed, Rob. And I just added my review to the others at amazon.com. It may not be much, but it beats sitting silent in the face of lies and petty whining!!

(the warrior woman in me is springing into action, lol )

Default Thanks, Lura!

P.S. and please remember, everyone, read all the reviews that have been posted for the book and choose either 'yes' or 'no' as to whether the review was helpful to you.

AND

P.P.S. If you can log on to Amazon.com, you can also log into (and write a review there, as well as determining whether or not the posted reviews on that site are helpful or not):
Canada - http://www.amazon.ca/
Great Britain - http://www.amazon.co.uk
France - http://www.amazon.fr/
Germany - http://www.amazon.de/
Italy - http://www.amazon.it/
Spain - http://www.amazon.es/
and
Brazil - http://www.amazon.com.br/

also, possibly, Japan:
http://www.amazon.co.jp/In-English/...F8&node=1094656

with China:
http://www.amazon.cn/
one needs to set up a separate account.
