Description

The moon had reached its maximum three times since the Chacoans conquered j the First Moon People. The Chaco matrons had built their Great House high, atop First Moon Mountain and their red-shirted warriors stalked arrogantly through the villages. Young Ripple had no desire to become a Dreamer, but when Cold Bringing Woman, the goddess of winter, appears at his high mountain camp, she sends him on a perilous quest to destroy the hated Chacoans. In retaliation, war chief leather Hand and his warriors embark on a campaign of terror so gruesome it remains unrivalled in the annals of prehistory. In the white light of the lunar maximum, the Pueblo gods will dance - and an empire will be engulfed in flames and mayhem.show more

A lively tale of warring clans....Should leave readers hungry for more entries in the series. "One of the best novels in the whole series. The Gears have consistently captured early Native American life with precision, detail, and narrative excitement, but in People of the Moon they reveal their skills to even sharper effect.....A riveting novel. . . .
