Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More than anything, young Blaze wants to be a man of his Sinagua tribe. He dreams of being a great hunter and warrior. But his people of the Great Cliff are a peaceful farming tribe and believe that learning the skills of war will anger the gods and worsen the drought that already threatens all the peoples of the desert. And then, on his first great journey, Blazed discovers the great Hohokam people and their game of guayball, a brutal and exciting sport played by both boys and men. Drawn to that culture which respects fighters above all others, Blaze must decide where his true spirit lies.Enjoy the excitement, passion and danger of the final days of Americas great cliff dwellings. In a world threatened by drought and war, one boy strives to grow up, and do the right thing for himself and his people.
