Description

Life as they know it is about to change forever . . . In the blink of an eye, a colony from Earth finds itself sucked into a wormhole. Plunged on a new planet, they must forge new lives and work together to survive. A tiny ant, Antuna, bravely steps up and becomes a leader. She protects the colony by thwarting harsh elements threatening starvation. She fights against discrimination and leads the resistance to the evil forces corrupting their society. But can she save her friends and herself from impending doom? Antuna’s Story is a Watership Down meets Empire of the Ants adventure, which reflects humanity’s frailties throughout history. A speculative fiction story where insects evolve and become intelligent enough to understand the chemistry of nature but lack the wisdom to prevent war and genocide. It provides a fresh, eye-opening look at how our world navigates the struggle between altruism and aggression.

Book Details

About The Author

The author, Terry Birdgenaw, is a Metis of Oji-Cree, English, Scottish, Dutch and French-Canadian heritage, whose mother’s first cousin is a long-time lead elder of the Metis Nation of Canada. However, Terry would argue that by moving away from the Oji-Cree territory a few generations ago, his family became assimilated by European Canadian culture. Yet, Terry has long been fascinated by the story of his ancestor, Mistigoose, the indigenous Canadian woman who was the first to welcome a European into his mother’s family line. Mistigoose was both a tragic figure and an inspiration for this series. Her tragedy was that she drowned herself while distraught over the loss of her first son William, whom her British husband Robert had taken permanently to England. Against her will, the author’s fifth great grandfather wanted to ensure their son would be eligible to receive a handsome inheritance promised to his heir. Ironically, as British law prohibited Metis from owning property, William never received his rightful inheritance, so his translocation and mother’s death were both in vain. The translation of Mistigoose, an Oji-Cree word, inspired parts of the story told in The Antunites Chronicles. In English, Mistigoose means little branch or twig. The title character of Antuna’s Story, whose own mother drowned, used a twig in a selfless effort to save her newfound friend Dinomite. The resolution of the second book in the series, The Rise and Fall of Antocracy, also depended on the insectoids’ realization that they needed tiny insects to break down little branches to generate the new soil required to rehabilitate their spent lands.
