From William Sarabande, whose brilliant re-creation of the prehistoric world of the First American has thrilled readers everywhere, comes a major new novel that awakens us to the true spirit of our ancestors. Following their destiny into an unknown land took more than courage–it demanded a belief in a future they would never see, a certainty that braving a path no human had ever taken was their only choice. Now, in a time of mystery and magic, when all they had protected the People from their enemies for the eons of prehistory seemed to be vanishing along with the animals they once hunted, the young shaman Cha-kwena must break a terrifying taboo, estranging him from his woman and his tribe.
