Book Description

In the dawn of history, a valiant people forged a pathway from an old world into a new one. Led by a dreamer who followed the spirit of the wolf, a handful of courageous men and women dared to cross the frozen wastes to find an untouched, unspoiled continent. 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 dream.

A sweeping epic of prehistory, People of the Wolf brings the true story of the ancestors of today's Native American peoples to life in an unforgettable saga of hardship and determination, conflict and passion.

Thousands of years ago, at the end of the Ice Age, small hunting bands crossed the fragile land bridge linking Europe and Asia to the Americas, and discovered a lush and fertile land untouched by humankind. Over the centuries that followed, the descendants of these first Americans spread across the face of the continent, adapting to its varied climates and conditions. People of the Wolf is the first gripping novel in a magnificent multi-volume saga that traces the epic history of these pioneer peoples.
