Born in a time of violent upheaval, young Odion and his little sister, Tutelo, live in fear that one day Yellowtail Village will be attacked. When that day comes, and Odion and Tutelo are marched away as slaves, Odion's only hope is that his parents are coming to rescue them. They are. But War Chief Koracoo and Deputy Gonda think they are tracking an ordinary war party herding captive women and children to an enemy village. Instead, they are following close on the heels of a legendary evil, an old witch-woman named Gannajero, who captures children for her own purposes. Download and start listening now!

    " Currently amazing and heart rending. I'm trying to read it as slowly as possible because I don't want it to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trisha | 2/17/2014

    " I thought this story was very well written. It kept me coming back for more and I'm excited to read the next book in the series soon. **Word of caution** There were some things that happened to the kidnapped kids that were hard for me to read. I know those things happen, but I'm not sure I'd want to read about it again. (I had to put that in so you knew it wasn't a perfectly clean book.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kitty Sutton | 2/14/2014

    " The Gears are the best at what they do, which is writing about pre-history based on archeology, creating a plausible fictional story to help us to understand the facts and thus preserve our own Native American history. Kathleen and Michael have been my lamplight in becoming a Native American historical fiction writer. They alone are responsible for peeking my interest in our dim past and have provided a window to that time and place of which they write. If you desire to see the past of our unknown history of the Native tribes of North America, I advise you to make all of the Gear's books your first choice. You can do no better. Kitty Sutton "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 2/12/2014

    " Good story - I like the Gear's books becuase they have an archeology background that is woven into the fictional stories. Sometimes the books seem to be a little repetative, similar story lines. But they are a fun read. This new series is a little different and I like that. Will be reading the next one in the quartet soon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/27/2014

    " Very adult themes. Good read though, engaging story and characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 1/20/2014

    " Love this style book. Really love these series about native americans, have read almost all of them. Can't wait to start the 2nd book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelli Otting | 1/19/2014

    " Disaster of a book. Complete nonsense from the first page. The other, 'People of' books are awesome. This one was a complete disappointment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 BluestockingBabe | 11/6/2013

    " Despite the upsetting topic, the Gears are still superb authors on First Nations history and culture and I will continue to read their books as long as they continue to write them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Feathzzz | 11/4/2013

    " It was really good between the high-impact action fight sequences, the anthropology kind of thing, and all the different mystic things happening in the plot. It was interwoven and complicated. The prose was beautiful at times. I'd definitely read more of the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 10/18/2013

    " An excellent piece of historical fiction. Read the first 4 chapters of the next book in the series on the authors' web site and will definitely be reading it when it comes out next year. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen Lannholm | 5/16/2013

    " The story goes way too long, but the history and culture are good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 T.R. Braxton | 9/13/2012

    " This is an exciting and unique read. It is a good old fashioned action-adventure yarn, depicting the efforts of long ago Native Americans to rescue their children from a terrifying (and perhaps supernatural) slave trader. I highly recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edie | 11/2/2011

    " I really like this whole series of Native American novels written by the Gears. I think that it is fascinating to read what lives that far back may have been like---and the authors are anthropologists so that helps. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beckyhardesty | 10/14/2011

    " Great history of native Americans. Great series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim Young | 9/29/2011

    " Good read, ready for more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miki | 8/19/2011

    " Another odd one that just sort of quits instead of ends. I'm assuming there will be a sequel. But for some reason, I liked it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 8/18/2011

    " First book of a series of four. Story of the Iroquois starting in 1400 AD, a time of changing climate, famine and warfare. The Gears' books are always well researched and interesting. I'm looking forward to the next one because the end leave you hanging. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doris | 3/25/2011

    " I know I'm probably jumping the gun, here, but I started reading this yesterday and I can already tell it is a winner! I am eager to read the Gears' take on the pre-history of the Iroquois (my People!) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lewis | 3/7/2011

    " I have read two books by these authors. Each time I enjoy the feeling of being back in time with native americans. The thought process and descriptions make me feel more in touch with nature and I learn things while enjoying good stories "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 9/23/2010

    " LOVED IT . LOVED ALL IN THIS GROUP. KEEPING THEM TO RE READ.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 7/3/2010

    " Fantasy in history, the story is too way off.Politics and good marketing strategy in trading. The ending is lousy. All worth the while-to read-if you travel 550km in a car. Not recommended for bed time reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 5/15/2010

    " Part 2 of the story begun in People of the Weeping Eye. Describes life among the Choctaw and Chickasaw before European contact. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jilll | 5/14/2010

    " I had a terrible time getting "into" this book....they threw a lot of names at the reader. But I'm stubborn and kept with it. I did end up liking it and was glad I finished it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dennis | 3/27/2010

    " The conclusion (not a sequel I don't think) to the People of the Weeping Eye. Although this book begins with a brief review of the previous book, many of the characters and subplots would be less understandable without the knowledge of the earlier book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denice | 3/20/2010

    " Once again the Gears have told a masterful tale of ancient America. They skillfully weave mystery with archaeology and a wealth of information on the customs and lives of the peoples in their stories. "

    " so far so good. really good book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leona | 4/21/2009

    " This, the sequel to People of the Weeping Eye, was also good, although not as good as the first book. The ending seemed to wrap together too neatly, although that can be a problem with any book involving mysticism and magic. I still really enjoyed it, though, and recommend it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 KathySwan | 4/13/2009

    " A wonderful conc. of this book, and the Gear's always have plot twists at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nance | 3/30/2009

    " Sequel to People of the Weeping Eye "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Khrys | 2/23/2009

    " A tedious read with too many details to hold one's attention. But the ending was remarkable! "
