A sweeping epic of prehistory, People of the Earth brings the true story of the ancestors of today's Native American peoples to life in an unforgettable saga of hardship and passion, of a woman torn between two peoples and two dreams, of the two men who love her and the third who must have her, and of the vision given to the peoples long ago by the spirit of the wolf.
Once again, bestselling authors and archaeologists W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O’Neal Gear bring North America's forgotten past vividly to life.
""An impressive novel, obviously written with love and care. Informative, but highly entertaining."" --John Jakes
""Magnificent; a smooth blend of superb archaeology and wonderful story!"" --Andrew M. Greeley
""A novel of suspense as well as a book to give you joy--and goosebumps....Knowledge illuminates even the smallest background detail yet never gets in the way of a great adventure tale, throbbing with life and death....
""The Gears show us an entire people shaped by spiritual values and thoroughly developed belief system. For this reason, as well as the fascination of their irresistible cast of characters, People of the Earth is the most convincing reconstruction of prehistory I have yet read.
""I shall read it again. It is a book to enjoy more than once."" --Morgan Llywelyn
