Having been to the Cahokia Mounds, I found this imagination of what life might have been in this time when there are no written records quite fascinating.

I admit, novels based on prehistoric North America make me cringe a little bit. This is not a great way to familiarize yourself with what's in the ground at Cahokia, but hey, she took the evidence and made a story out of it. Kind of like archaeologists do.

This wasn't a stellar novel, but I have to say (to my surprise) that it's not that bad either. It's a decent story with some decent characters. It is so close to being a really compelling story. I suppose it comes down to whether "almost" count

Read it in history class. It was an interesting way of writing, because it was supposed to be a novel backed with historically legitimate facts as details. Not too bad of a story, and much better than a textbook!
