More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This love story, set in prehistoric Denmark, opens with an image of a body hung from a treeforeshadowing the violence to come. Wolf, a teenage boy whose people are hunters in the forest, meets Bright Dawn, a girl whose people are farmers and fell the trees. Their tribes are too suspicious of each other to live in peace. Each group wonders if the other, with such dissimilar habits and features, can be truly human. When hostilities flare, the two lovers are forced to flee, hoping to combine their customs and start a new life. Although the plot is somewhat thin and seems faintly contrived in the beginning, it ends convincingly, and the shifting point of view, which reveals much about the characters, is smoothly handled. Wolf and Bright Dawn have a sweetness that translates well to modernand sometimes equally bittertimes. Ages 10-14. (March)
School Library Journal
Gr 5-7 In prehistoric Denmark, a tribe of farmers seeks a new home, threaten ing the centuries-old traditions of the incumbent forest-dwelling hunter gath erers. The conflict between these two groups is told through the romanticized and simplistic story of Wolf, a young hunter, and Bright Dawn of the farming community. When the hunters attack the farmers, Wolf saves Bright Dawn, causing him to be cast out from his tribe. Ultimately, both are rejected by her people, too, so they realize that they and their children will be the nu cleus of a new tribeone which will be a rich combination of both cultures. McGowen gives readers a basic course in the reasons for war as he shows the fears, prejudices, and survival instincts of the two factions, while pointing out the common humanness of both groups. Harry Behn's Faraway Lurs (G. K. Hall, 1981) is more finely devel oped and has greater depth, but this is competently written and deserves a place of its own in school and public libraries. It could lead older readers to Auel's Clan of the Cave Bear (Crown, 1980). Florence Packer, Free Library of Philadelphia
