In the Pleistocene era, a young Firekeeper has a handicap and a relationship to the character Fire. This youth, who is of the night, also falls into an impossible love with a woman of the day. At least three dangers present, the fire going out in the depth of winter, humans who hunt other humans, and the dark Spirit of the Long Night, with whom the Firekeeper fights each winter. In the end all these threads come to a head on the longest night of the year.

About the Author
The author, who has lectured on the paleolithic and studied early human evolution, has envisioned a firekeeper from Pleistocene times. Combining his study of shamanism from a course he helped design, Sacred Art of Indigenous Cultures, the author creates a character in Fire, which has a human-like relationship with the Keeper. He has also gained a sense of people who live close to fire, having spent time in the interior of Guatemala, where people gather around open fires in their huts.
