Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
The epic tale that began in "People of the Longhouse "continues in this second book of the thrilling new Iroquois quartet by bestselling authors and archaeologists Kathleen O'Neal Gear and W. Michael Gear.

War Chief Koracoo and Deputy Gonda of the Standing Stone People have successfully rescued their children, Odion and Tutelo, from Gannajero the Trader. Known as the Crow, Gannajero is a figure out of nightmare--a witch who steals children. Odion's friend Wrass is still held captive, along with several other children, in Gannajero's camp, and Koracoo and Gonda are determined to save them all.

This time, Koracoo and Gonda have allies: a battle-weary Mohawk war chief and a Healer from the People of the Dawnland, who have also lost children to Gannajero. These bitter enemies must learn to trust each other and find common ground. Will they be able to put their differences aside and rescue the children before they are sold and carried off to distant villages--and lost to their families and homes forever?

With their trademark mastery of American prehistory, Kathleen and Michael Gear tell a very human story of love and courage set against the backdrop of violent and endemic warfare of the Iroquois nations prior to the founding of the League of the Iroquois.

About the author

Biography of Gear, Kathleen O'Neal

Kathleen O'Neal Gear was born on October 29, 1954 in Tulare, California. She attended several colleges in California, including University of California at Los Angeles, and has held several positions in the fields of archeology and paleontology. She married W. Michael Gear in 1982, and they have collaborated on a series of books for young adults. The theme of these books is ancient civilizations, and the titles include People of the Wolf, People of the Fire, and People of the Sea.

In their first book, People of the Wolf, twin brothers are born of parents from rival tribes. They are raised in the tribe of one parent and must deal with the conflict of belonging. These books, along with those of author Jean Auel, helped to revitalize an interest in early civilizations. Gear has also written several books by herself. The titles in her Women of the West series are particularly noteworthy because they focus on the importance of women in the history of the Old West.

Biography of Gear, W. Michael

Gear is a Colorado native who received a Masters in Anthropology from Colorado State University in 1979. He has worked in several different fields that include racing motorcycles, operating a mining claim, engraving tombstones, teaching physical anthropology and driving a garbage truck. Gear's published works include mainstream, historical, western, and science fiction novels. He wrote "Morning River", which is set in the American West in 1825 and was nominated for the 1996 Pulitzer Prize and the American Book Award for "Dark Inheritance", which is about genetic manipulation in pygmy chimpanzees.

He has also written a North American Prehistory series, with his wife Kathleen O'Neal Gear, called the People novels. These novels span 15,000 years in the life of our continent and one, "People of the Lakes", was nominated for the 1995 Pulitzer Prize.
