This one is exceptional. I like all of Gears' books but some are almost too violent. This one is good.

This book kept me interested and looking for what would come. It follows a young man forced into adulthood. There is adventure and social conflict, mystery and intrigue in this unsuspecting book. Well worth the read.

I tried but I just couldn't read more than half the chapters in the book. I found the story boring and the cast of characters too complicated to keep track of. It's not like other historical fiction about Native Americans that I've read and enjoyed. I had high hopes for the People Of The...Series but this book just didn't live up to my expectations.

Four thousand years ago, in what is now known as the American South, a boy is thrust into manhood long before he is ready. Youn Salamander is only 15 winters old and would much rather catch crickets & watch blue herons fish than dabble in the politics of his clan. After his heroic brother is killed, Salamander becomes the leader of America's first city. He inherits his brother's two wives who despise him, and is forced to marry his mortal enemy's daughter to forge an alliance for the trade goods his people desperately need. The book is based on facts retrieved from the ancient earth mounds in Louisianna and many other archeological & anthropological sources.
