A white man in North America more than 9000 years ago? What was he doing there?
Molly W. reviewed People of the Raven (First North Americans) on
I enjoyed this book as much or more than the other books in the First North Americans series by Kathleen and Michael Gear. This one took place in the Pacific Northwest which is where I have lived all of my life. It involves a story about Kennewick man, which caught my attention when he was first found. I think these authors are good at portraying characters who seem real and make you want to find out what happens to them. I had a hard time putting the book down and finished it within a couple of days. If you like the other "People" books I am sure you will also enjoy this one.
