The harsh post-glacier landscape provides the setting for this story of native American prehistory, in which the pregnant Kestrel flees westward from her vengeful husband after witnessing her lover's murder

McMillan Palgrave

Twelve thousand years ago, the glaciers of the Sierra Nevada were melting, destroying the habitat of the mastodons and creating the rich land that would become California. The coastal people struggle to understand the changing world around them: their seer Sunchaser has lost his way to the Spirit World, and mammoths continue to disappear.

When a beautiful woman arrives, fleeing from her abusive husband, the people know what they must do--for if the Spirits are already taking the animals away, what will happen if they shelter a stranger?

Now Sunchaser must make a choice--between the woman he loves and the preservation of his people's world.

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling authors and award-winning archaeologists W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear bring North America's Forgotten Past to brilliant life in People of the Sea.
