Not your typical Piers Anthony fare - a historical fiction book speculating on the history of Native American burial mounds and the spirits that inhabit them. A very good read.
This book is about the Indians of Florida. Gives you a great insight into what they went through on a daily basis. Very good read.
From book back: They inhabit the unspoiled swamplands, mountain plains and verdant forests of the vast North American continent--warriors, shamans, hunters and farmers of sundry tribes and cultures. And one man travels among them--a speaker of many tongues born 'Hotfoot' but renamed 'Throat Shot' as a cruel consequence of a hunting raid. From the burial mound of his ancestors, the spirits set him on his life's path--impelling the young brave through war and hardship, through magical wonder and passionate love, on a mystical quest to deliver his people from the devastation that bears relentlessly down upon them.
My young daughter loves some of Piers's books, this one is not for children.
