People of the Wolf

DreamA sweeping epic of prehistory People of the Wolf is another compelling novel in the majestic North America's Forgotten Past series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors W Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Ge. Years ago I read a few of Christian Jac s ancient Egypt novels I was hopeful that I d be onto something good because the author was an Egyptologist at last historical fiction by historians Why do I mention this now Well the Gears a husband and wife team are also both archaeologists And both Jac s books and the Gears books are definite misses for meI think there s a lesson to be learned here and I say this as an archaeologist who has toyed with the idea of writing historical fiction myself just knowing the history intimately does not make a great historical fiction novel An excellent knowledge of language character development plotting and storycraft is reuired as well I found the Gears novel suffered from similar problems to Jac s clunky stilted dialogue wooden and stereotyped characters melodramatic plot and prose that alternates between simplistic and purple I wish it were not so but there it is4 out of 10

Ouched unspoiled continent Set in what is now Alaska this is the magnificent saga of the vision filled man who led his people to an awesome destiny and the courageous woman whose love and bravery drove them on in pursuit of that. I would give this book 312 stars I generally like the Gear s books I have read several of them I like their writing style They write short chapters and have vivid characters This book had both What put me off was the wandering plot There were so many characters to keep track of and I sometimes forgot which were enemies and which were friends I did enjoy the early Native American lore and the mysticism which is a large part of the plot I thought the book could have been a bit shorter It did have a good ending I would recommend it to those who like early Native American history and great characterization

    I picked up this book because I thought it would be similar to Jean Auel's Earth Children series Sadly I love those Ayla books I read them in high school and have so many fond memories of dog earing the dirty parts My parents thought I was reading historical fiction ha This book was similar since it had a prehistoric setting but

    All of these North American series books were recommended to me by my Grandpa Dudley who recently passed away He would read these books then send them on to me to read Through reading and discussing them my Grandpa and I grew closer these last few years of his life Maybe that's why I enjoyed them so much Or maybe it was because they were all such great uniue stories filled with details about each Native American tribe but with
