1. "Lord of the Dawn by Tony Shearer is an exciting poetic journey into the story of the Plumed Serpent, Quetzalcoatl, prophet-king of the ancient Toltecs, and into ancient Mexican life, culture, religion and emotions. There are two maps and over 200 illustrations by the author, nine of them in full color. The author, half Indian, has done a splendid job - dramatic, poetic and evocative of a tragic yet prophetic past." (Daily Sentinel, May 16, 1971)
2. "...the author's personal journey after his realization that success and financial gain in the television and media industry were not what he wished.
"Shearer takes his readers through the Thirteen Heavens and Nine Hells where he skillfully weaves in the little people who come from the Tree of Life to influence people to respect one another and preserve Mother Earth." (Chuck Hamsa, Reviewers Consortium, April 1995)
