Author Ravenspeaker’s New Book, “Building a Man,” is a Coming-of-Age Tale About a Young Urban American Indian Fumbling His Way Toward Adulthood –

New York, NY, February 15, 2024 –(– Ravenspeaker, the stage name for Robert Douglas Frederiksen, has completed his new book, “Building a Man”: a gripping novel that explores the connection between story and philosophy on one hand, and the creation and reflection of culture through storytelling on the other. He believes when a society no longer treasures its old stories and produces new ones with little or no impact, it is in trouble. Ravenspeaker is inspired by his two children and two grandchildren for his series of novellas and short stories called “The Mousy Mouse Chronicles.”

Published by Page Publishing, Ravenspeaker’s thought-provoking tale ruminates on this question: “Is there a single decision or discovery that makes an adult out of a child?”

“Building a Man” follows the adventures and misadventures of Ravenspeaker who must navigate horrific circumstances, incredible humiliation, and seemingly insurmountable hopelessness to reach adulthood.

Along the way, he meets very special people who show him pieces of the puzzle he is missing. With each new discovery, he gets closer to understanding what life-changing principle they all have in common.

Readers who wish to experience this life-changing work can purchase “Building a Man” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
