Full description for People of the Owl
The oldest city in America is not St. Augustine, Florida (1565 AD) or even Old Aralbi of the Hopi Mesas (1240 AD), but the vast 400-acre earthen mound of Poverty Point, Louisiana, dating back some 3500 years. A booming commercial centre, its thousands of inhabitants traded as far north as Wisconsin and Ohio. People Of The Owl tells the story of this vast trading empire and its people - their war stories and songs, and their fiery loves. Most of all, this is the story of the noble warrior and shaman, Salamander. An impassioned messiah, his stirring vision would shape the People of the Owl, inspire their dreams, fire their faith, and lead them into truth-and sometimes into slaughter.
