Love and Conflict in a Powerful Novel of American Prehistory
ONE WOMAN’S RELENTLESS STRUGGLE TO PROTECT HER TRIBE!
“Entertaining and thought-provoking.” —Publishers Weekly
The last Ice Age in North America is ending. The glaciers are retreating, and the Great Plains are teeming with wildlife.
However, the plains are filled with marauding gangs of brutal men who are as dangerous to other human life as they are to the beasts they slaughter.
Against them stands Mara, a chieftain with a unique vision. She pursues peace and justice, giving females in her tribe equal footing with males. But now her people are threatened with destruction, not only by vicious enemies but by catastrophic changes in climate.
This is the epic story of Mara, who will let no man break her spirit, despite the frailty of her flesh. She resists the treachery and terror that threaten her people. She alone has the courage to lead them against the evil giant, Barem, and his tribe of thugs.
Here is the enthralling saga of an unforgettable woman and a momentous struggle in a time when humanity is reaching perilous crossroads—and history is waiting to be made.
