In this newest installment of the bestselling Prehistoric North America series, animals and humans are struggling for survival amidst massive environmental change.

Mammoths, mastodons, and giant lions have become extinct, and Rain Bear, the chief of Sandy Point Village, knows his struggling Raven People may be next. One day a beautiful red-haired woman, Evening Star, stumbles into his council lodge and begs him for sanctuary. He soon learns that she's an escaped slave from the North Wind People, a Caucasoid race and the Raven People's mortal enemies. If he offers to protect her, the North Wind People will attack, but if he sends her back, Rain Bear knows Evening Star will be tortured and perhaps killed. When she warns him that warriors are already on their way, Rain Bear must decide if his people should run or prepare for a war that could result in their demise.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clare | 10/29/2011

    " This fictional tale of very early native Americans was pretty good, but I found it somewhat confusing that the characters in the story referred to the elements as if they were people, especially since the characters names were also frequently 'earthy'. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb | 9/5/2011

    " This 'period book' took place 14,000 years ago in what is now the states of Washington and Oregon. The envisioned life of people's day-to-day activities needed for survival and corresponding beliefs was entertaining. "
