     In the American Indian belief, it is said that we never really know who we are until we find our totem, and once we do, then everything falls into place, even in the midst of chaos. Lion Eyes is the exciting true story of Jan Milburn, who came face-to-face with his totem—and was transformed. As a love-deprived young child, he got lost in a snowstorm in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, and a huge mountain lion led him safely home . . . setting him on a course for a miraculous life. Acclaimed best-selling author Victor Villaseñor gives voice to Jan’s thrilling tale, full of danger, clashes between light and darkness, romance, and healing miracles.
     Against the backdrop of the ’60s—a time of love and war, a time of turmoil and social upheaval, a time of young people’s exuberant exploration while the establishment tried to hold on to the past—Jan Milburn chose an unusual calling . . . becoming the youngest minister ever ordained by the state of California.
     Jan’s spiritual path, incredibly, led him from San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury District of the ’60s to Mexico, and into the darkness of the drug world. Hunted by a notorious assassin, he stared down death and encountered the very depths of depravity and violence—but ultimately awakened to his magical Spirit Guides and the Kingdom of God within each of us that transcends religion and “of-the-body” limitations.
     It was at this time that Mireya, a beautiful young Indian girl, saw in Jan the noble heart of a lion and the vision of an eagle. Nothing could get in the way of her love and admiration for this man. It was written in the stars, she said. Eventually, Mireya and Jan married and were instrumental in helping to return more than two million acres of stolen land to the Tarahumara Indians of Chihuahua, Mexico. 
     Lion Eyes is a mystical, heartfelt, soul-inspiring love story of timeless relevance. It shows us that our global future lies not just in our politics and religious beliefs, but also in our unwavering love and our forgotten native wisdom that once we find our totem, everything falls into place, even amidst chaos . . . illustrated by one man’s incredible life, which can become the norm for all of humanity!
