This was another win for me from the Goodreads' giveaways and it was another excellent book. It is the first book in a trilogy on the arrival of the Spaniards in southeastern America and it's affect on the local peoples. The main character is Calling Crow who is trying to save his people from the Spaniards. I'm always amazed at the inhumanity and cruelty of the Spaniards of this time period and I, fleetingly think that we've grown as a people and wouldn't treat other that we don't understand, or who have different beliefs, like that today. Then I remember all of the terrible things that have happened in recent years in the name of someone's religion or country and wonder if we have grown at all. That all by itself is a good reason to read this book. Are we heading down that same road again?
