However it helped the story to have read the previous two books in this series. And if you like this read you will definitely like any of the novels by William Sarabande. they are in the same vein but the 4 or 5 I have read by him were pre-historic, but very good.

People of the moon By Kathleen O’Neal Gear and W. Michael Gear it has been quoted form Robert Frost that the world will end in either fire or ice, in this book by the Gears brings to question, what if it’s both. The Strait path nation is coming to an end, like the never ending spiral of the world it has completed its cycle. Webworm like his counterpart Nero seems to be dancing as the world burns literally around him. For the first time the Gears have brought together two great cast of characters, Night sun and Ironwood from people of the silence, and the powerful dreamer Nightshade. They have both seen the destruction of the world as they know, have come here to witness the battle of the Gods, as they see the world’s self-destruction. In the book we are introduced to four young new characters, four close childhood friends. Ripple, a young dreamer, brought into power by the gods themselves only to be tortured by the Strait Path matron Larksbird. The robust and endowed Wrapped wrist, who thought it, was more fun to play dalliances then any service to his clan or family. Bad Cast a young husband looked up to by all his friends for his jolly nature, and loving wife. Finally Spots, a scared and lonely man who believes he has nothing to look forward to. They all find that sacrifice for family; friends and the gods will bring them the greatest of things but cost them the most dearly. What choices would you make if on one hand you could have the love of life, and all the things you dreamed about, or give up everything to save the world?

Good fictional story of early Native Americans in the Mississippi river area, including their beliefs and system of government.

Great story of the early american people. The Gear's have writen an other fantastic book about early life preeuropean influence. The way they write about the characters makes them come to life and jump from the pages as you read. The weaving of the different cahracters story line is per poetry.

WOW!!!If you have read any of the other books by the Gears you will love this one. I love how it brings books 4,People of the River, and book 8, People of the Silence, of the First North American Series together with the Anasazi Mystery series. Everything you questioned in the other books is answered in this one. It brings together all the facts and tid bits of information together into one heck of a book to read.

Glad to see that even in the prehistoric world, villians get their comeuppance. It's a somewhat drawn-out tale of the demise of the first great southwestern society (North America) but the characters have real depth with no redundancy. Especially interesting were the descriptions of the kivas, the construction of the various settlements/towns and the admirable way the Gears managed to write about the weather, itself as vital as any character, as ominously important to the storyline. I was moved by the story of the stone feather holder and won't forget it.
