Synopsis: "There can be no more life as usual. We need to live life unusual and get ready for...
the adventure of a lifetime!"

With her infant in her arms, Black single mother Henrietta Owens shakes the nation awake with some tough-loving truth about coal, climate change, and the future of humanity. The coal company wants her stopped at any cost. Coal company lawyer Jack Dalton's morality and career collide as Henrietta rallies people to her cause.

The stakes are high: life, death, the extinction of humanity. Jack's wife crosses the line of loyalty, his daughter lectures him on heroism, the Appalachians foment a revolution, and the ghost of legendary John Henry shows up to haunt him. The climate change countdown is ticking. Political pressures heat up. The sleeping giant of the common man awakens with a roar. One question hammers in Jack's ears: what are you going to do?

Author/Actress Rivera Sun sings the anthem of our times. Steam Drills celebrates the everyday heroes hidden in activists and soccer moms, alike. Rich metaphor and exquisite writing thrust this novel into the realms of literary greatness, while the story grabs the social issues of our times by the collar and shakes them hard. A soaring tribute to the beauty of the human spirit and also a scathing indictment of contemporary American culture, this unforgettable book seizes you at the first page and sends you flying out the other side, refreshed, rejuvenated and empowered to change.

People Love This Book! You will too!

Some Reviews:

"Her words melt in my heart like good chocolate melts in my mouth. Go ahead. Have some good chocolate. Taste this book. Taste the questions and some possible answers for the serious issues that face us now. You won't regret it. I promise you." ~ Occupy Your Heart

"It is rare that I find a 'stay up into the wee hours page turner'. And, that's what I found in Steam Drills, Treadmills and Shooting Stars! It's a peace-filled, roller coaster ride to the end - just like life. So, climb aboard, let go of the safety bar, ride with Henrietta and friends, and imagine the world we can create. Let it land in your bones and discover what calls you to action." ~ Cindy Reinhardt

"If you enjoy old fashioned story telling and folk tales, but you feel dismayed at things too large for one person to change, then you'll enjoy engaging with this novel. Check it out, it will give you food for thought." ~ Charles A. Simonds

"This is a book written from the principled heart of a citizen of Earth concerned with the well being of the Planet and all mankind." ~ Blue Eagle

"This story draws you in and doesn't let you go. The language and poetry of the writing is beautiful, descriptive, and pure pleasure to soak in. Each character pops off the page and leaps forward - you root for them and feel inspired by them and their challenges. I had a hard time putting the book down as the suspense grew and hope for each character mounted.

The author weaves a tapestry of love and challenge with poetry, sound, and color. The words seem to have this tangible quality - almost like I could put my hands on the loom and feel them. Remarkable and memorable. I highly recommend this inspiring book for the magic it creates and the change it inspires!
~ Dawn Hayes

About the Author: Rivera Sun has red hair, a twin sister, and a fondness for esoteric mystics. She went to Bennington College to study writing as a Harcourt Scholar and graduated with a degree in dance. She lives in an earthship house in New Mexico, where she grows tomatoes, bakes sourdough bread, and and drinks pu'erh tea. Rivera has been an aerial dancer, a bike messenger, and a gung-fu style tea server. She is the author of four novels, nine produced plays, two books of poetry and hundreds of articles and radio shows on social justice issues and nonviolent civil action. Everything else about her -except her writing- is perfectly ordinary.
