About the Book

Crafted from the imagination and experiences of Sheryl Wright, Contrary Warriors bucks all literary and societal trends to send a team of American First Nation women on a gripping military escapade usually reserved for their male counterparts. Born from the author’s own experience as an military veteran and commercial pilot, Contrary Warriors takes a modern, fun and wholly-unique modern spin on American OSS and Commonwealth SOE operations. The volume has already been hailed “fast-paced and heart stopping” by critics.
