    insightful People of the Longhouse. insightful People of the Longhouse. insightful People of the Longhouse

    During the Late Iroquoian Period around AD 1400, the northern tribes are at war with one another over resources including people to replenish shrinking populations. Most struggle to survive with the constant conflicts, some strive.

    The People of the Standing Stone are massacred with their village destroyed. The children are sold to Gannajero a brutal slave trader who sells children to other tribes. The People of the Standing Stone's female war chief Koracoo and her spouse Gonda are outraged by the atrocities and want their two kids and the other children rescued. They and two adversarial warriors begin a rescue mission that can only end with death; hopefully they pray their enemies.

    The latest North America's Forgotten Past tribal saga (see Mississippian period - People of the Thunder) is a great entry that emphasizes time and place just prior to the European contact. As denoted in the nonfiction introduction, the Iroquois are a prime source of American democracy (not just Locke and the Founding Fathers), which adds to the fascination fog an action-packed story line that remains if first gear for most of the historical thriller. Although the climax feels abrupt and rushed, readers will enjoy the insightful People of the Longhouse.

    I thought the book started off strong, but I was severely disappointed with the ending. So much of it was left unresolved. I thought for sure I had missed a chapter. The pacing was also pretty slow until the the very end and it seemed like the author was rushing to finish. It had a lot of potential but ended up being somewhat of a letdown.

    I had read all of the Gears' "People of" novels, and normally I love them, but this was one only OK. I was turned off by the child rape plot element, I found the story to be very disjointed, and I couldn't seem to warm up to any of the characters. I don't plan to buy or read any more of the "People of the Longhouse" novels. I've started reading the "Contact" novels instead.

    The beginning story of the Iroquois confederacy

    Wow a powerful story with intrigue and terror and horror, about the beginning of the reasons why the Iroquois confederacy began and the role of evil in why people begin to ban together to fight it, it is their divisions that make it hard for the individual to remain safe and secure. Very Graphic and Horrific in context.
