People of the Sea: First North Americans #5 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback, the latest in the internationally bestselling First North Americans series. The coastal people of what will be California, Arizona, and New Mexico are struggling with the changing world around them. As the mammoths disappear, the seer Sunchaser must decide whether to shelter a beautiful stranger and risk angering the Spirits further.

Synopsis:

Thousands of years ago, small hunting bands crossed the fragile land bridge linking the Eurasian continent to the Americas and discovered a land untouched by humankind. Over the centuries that followed, their descendents spread throughout this land. Bestselling authors and award-winning archaeologists W. Michael Gear and Kathleen ONeal Gear bring the stories of these first North Americans to life in this magnificent, multi-volume saga.

 

Twelve thousand years ago, the glaciers of the Sierra Nevada were melting, destroying the habitat of the mastodons and creating the rich land that would become California. The coastal people struggled to understand the changing world around them, but their seer, Sunchaser, had lost his way to the Spirit World. Would his people remain loyal to Sunchaser even as they saw their way of life disappearing like the glaciers, or would they follow a rival seer?

Synopsis:

The glaciers of the Sierra Nevada are melting, destroying the habitat of the mastodons, creating the rich land that will become California. The coastal people struggle to understand the changing world around them: their seer Sunchaser has lost his way to the Spirit World, and mammoths continue to disappear.

When a beautiful woman arrives, fleeing from her abusive husband, the people know what they must do--for if the Spirits are already taking the animals away, what will happen if they shelter a stranger?

Now Sunchaser must make a choice--between the woman he loves and the preservation of his people's world.
