ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Dale R. Pfeiffer, the author of The Pfeifferberg Chronicles trilogy, was introduced to ancient history through an inspiring junior high history teacher. In college Dale earned a B. A. degree in Bible and History attending Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida. Later in life, Dale desired to learn about his family roots. Curious he purchased a subscription on ancestry.com. There Dale discovered that he was a direct descendant of Pfeiffer homesteaders in Rotensol, Germany, and after further research, discovered Pfeiffer von Pfeifferberg, one of many Pfeiffer nobles who were knighted in both Austria and Switzerland during the Holy Roman Empire. This love of ancient history and the experience gained while chronicling his family roots compelled Mr. Pfeiffer to author The Pfeifferberg Chronicles trilogy. Dale serves on the Winston Salem Writers Board of Directors.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR'S BOOKS:
BOOK ONE: DESCENT FROM WHITE MOUNTAINS is a glimpse into life in the days of Noah, before and after the Great Flood. Although sourced primarily from the Book of Genesis, the author offers an exciting and unique story-line by weaving information from ancient Celtic chronicles with elements of Caucasian tradition and archaeological discoveries that have enlightened our historical perspective. Book One is the story of the adventurous life of Japheth, the Great Voice, and his seven magnificent sons: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. These highly intelligent and fit ancients are believed by many to be the progenitors of all Caucasian people.
BOOK TWO: OF KINGS AND CHRONICLES is the story of the war weary ancestors of King Iobaath, the grandson of Javan, sojourning in Assuwa (Turkey), of the exploratory voyage of Captain King Alanus and his pioneering sons, and of the emerging Celtic tribal kingdoms of Europa. The first three chapters portray life in Assuwa from approximately 2500 BC to 1200 BC before Captain King Alanus, a spiritual man of great faith and obedience, makes his epic voyage from Alanya of Pamphylia (southern Turkey) to Catalonia of Europa (southeastern Spain) along familiar Phoenician trade routes to the westernmost waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The last four chapters portray the tribal life of a God-fearing Bavarian family during four successive Celtic cultures occurring before Julius Caesar eventually defeats them.
BOOK THREE: O FOOLISH GALATIANS spans a period of time from Julius Caesar to the end of the Holy Roman Empire. Celtic descendants of Captain King Alanus return to their original homeland in Assuwa to defeat the Greeks but fail. A rumor about a man from Galilee who claims to be God emerges in Israel and captures the curiosity of the Galatian Celts. As Christians, a remnant of Galatian nobles return to the Roman Province of Noricum, back to their Bavarian homeland, where they are persecuted for their newfound Christian faith. Under the rule of Constantine, the once persecuted Christians emerge from various hiding places and unite in conference at Nicene. With the powerful State and Church united, Christianity spreads throughout Europe. The story ends during the collapse of the Holy Roman Empire and morale. (Available March 2018)
