Description

People of the River is a gripping saga of pre-historic America that takes us to the Mississippi Valley and the tribe known as the Mound builders. 

It is a time of troubles. In Cahokia, the corn crop is failing again and a warchief - and the warrior woman he may never possess - are disgusted by their Chief's lust for tribute. Now even the gods have turned their faces, closing the underworld to the seers. If the gods have abandoned the people, there is no hope - unless it comes in the form of a young girl who is learning to Dream of Power. 

A masterful story of North America's Forgotten Past by New York Times and USA Today best-selling authors W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear.

Great book

I believe I may have enjoyed the Audible version a bit more then when I read the book. The narrator gave me a better grasp of the characters personalities. I will be excited to see more in the series made into audiobooks!

the greatest city in America

Review: People of the River Audible.com

Mark Boyett has a wonderful way of drawing the listener into the story. His voices, and enchanting excitement shows the drama of this war filled story. He has a way of showing reverence to the mythology shown in the story. His way of interpreting the awe of the characters to the acts of war, passion and power. Bagertail- war leader is remarkably wounded and fighting his own mental demons as he faces his reluctance to war. Locus-the voice shows the regret of losses friends, and not believing the events of her life. Nightshade is mysterious and very very scary, as Kathleen Gear would see her, the voice giving the character power that is in her words and actions. Lichen- the voice is innocent and awed by the power she is brought to understand. Wander- his voice makes the character contrary nature even more outstanding. I wonder at the voice and see more of the comparison to the newer stories of Cahokia, and the stories of power for the largest city of america until the 1800's. Review People of the River is a wonderful tale of interest built from the remains found in an archaeology dig Mississippians, who, between 700 A.D. and 1500 A.D., Cahokia people are in crisis, and starving and not able to pay their chief. A new dreamer comes to help change the world for the better.The starvation and war has made the world close to the brink of death, Mother earth has closed the door to the rain. The first woman has closed the portal to the world of dreams, dreamers are unable to reach the land of the dead and talk to their ancestors. over a decade ago Nightshade was kidnapped by Bagertail on the advice of Old Mormont, who dreamed she would lead to a new way. Old Mormont has only seen part of the dream. Nightshade has been band from Chaokia. Tharon, the Sun Chief of the sun people of Cahokia. The elite of the people of the mounds, has been up to something evil. His behavior has caused the drought, the last straw in the evil of men who do not keep the balance of the spiral. Tharon is collecting all the power objects from the Cahokia empire, sending Bagertail to raid and destroy all those who oppose him. Bagertail reluctantly does as his Chief demands, and looses his brother on a deadly raid. Lost in his grief, Bagertail finds solace in his closest friend Locast. His female cousin, and a strong warrior. Locaust is married to the Berache Primrose, third in line of the leadership of his clan. Locust is a young girl of 10 who has the touch of a dreamer. Meadow Vole her mother is the keeper of the Stone Wolf, which used to be part of the wolf bundle and connected to power. Meadow Vole is frightened and unable to dream. Wanderer Locast father, although she does not know it, desires its time to teacher her to dream. And to lead her to her spirit helper, Bird- Man (Raven hunter) the dark hero twin. Can Nightshade find the path to the world of the dead. Can someone reach the first woman and talk to her and change her mind, and save humanity. A dynamic story with many exciting adventures, battles, and power challenges. I will be meeting John Kelly one of the researchers who are acknowledged in this book for the information the Gears used as resources for the anthropology of the book. I hope to gain more understanding of the familiar story.
