Learn the Secret of Orenda

You may think you've read everything that Whitley Strieber has written, but you HAVEN'T, because his beautiful novel The Secret of Orenda, a thriller about a lost Indian tribe that remembers the secrets of the past, has just been published for your summer reading pleasure. In it Whitley explores the question of what has been lost by creating a hidden Indian tribe called Orenda, who still preserve those secrets. Known only to a few initiates, the people of Orenda continue the ancient ways. But even the wildest places are under threat, and this ancient people, who know nothing of the modern world, are discovered—and become a sensation. Must their magic die, absorbed in the hectic modern world, or can it somehow be saved?

Now you can download it as an E-book for only $9.99. Whitley wrote this after he became fascinated with Native American legends and learned how our American Indians are familiar with the beings we call the Visitors. Anne Strieber was even given an Indian name.

If you want to have a good time on your summer vacation, take along your kindle, nook or ipad and download The Secret of Orenda!


Whitley.....The Secret of Orenda.....could not be found in the NOOK store.

Success, tried again and was able to download..... The Secret of Orenda.....

He mentions on this site to search 'Strieber Orenda' to find it on Nook.

Call me a fuddy-duddy, but I still like the feel of a real book in my hands. I do not own a Nook, Kindle, iPad, etc. I do not mind reading articles and such on-line, but not a entire book. Will this book ever be in hard copy format?

I would very much like to read this, because of my own connections to ancient tribes...Thanks!

Searching "Strieber Orenda" also works on Kindle. I'm looking forward to reading it.

I was like you, until I discovered the read-aloud function of the Kindle. Now I can listen to books while commuting, raking leaves, shoveling snow, mowing the lawn (with noise-cancelling headphones), gardening, or doing mundane chores or even at work when the type of work allows. You can easily get through a novel a week, while leading a very busy life at work and at home with family. I know no other way to get that kind of input. You can send into your Kindle any Word doc or PDF and listen to that as well. This is the same reason I've long subscribed to be able to download Unknown Country and CTC radio shows. With the Kindle, if you get interrupted while listening to something you can easily go back a few pages and see the text if you like. It beats audio books in that regard, handy for nonfiction technical material. Adobe Reader will also read books aloud, and there are a few other PDF audio readers available for free or a small amount. With Kindle, you can have the software on your PC/Mac/iPad/iPhone or Android phone, as well as the Kindle, and the various installs will all sync to where you last read, so you can use any little bit of time you get to read. Stuck in a long line? Time to enjoy!
