One thought on “People of the Wolf”

  1. When I picked up this book at the library, my very first thought was, "Oh man, cheap dime store coveris is going to be so cheesy." And then I thought, "Crapif this is really cheesy, at this length, it'll take me a year to read it." Well, I'm here to tell you that I did judge this book by its cover, and I was very wrong. I loved this book. The idea in itself was fascinating, but at the same time, it sounded tremendously boring--a story about the first Native Americans who crossed the Bering Strai [...]

  2. I liked the premise of this novel, a tale of the Clovis people of the Pleistocene, the stone age hunters who crossed the Siberian Bering land bridge to become the ancestors of the native tribes of America. The husband and wife writing team are archeologists, and certainly must have the technical knowledge to ground the tale. The problem is the puerile quality of the writing, so bad from the beginning I could barely push myself to persist to at least page fifty. The mystical/spiritual aspect isn' [...]

  3. 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 there were a million characters and no dirty parts. Overall I liked it, but I had trouble keeping track of all the people. There were two tribes and the name [...]

  4. This whole series was enjoyable,trapping me in the pages as I went through book after book. As a native American, it brings me back to my heritage and makes me proud of the people i came from, regardless of these being fiction. I loved the color that was painted with the words i read, as the whole story was written out, through the generations of these people.

  5. I was really excited to read this book, since the peopling of the Americas is one of my favorite subjects. Not only did I get a Master's degree in Archaeology, I live in the American Midwest, where much of the earliest remnants are found. But I was horribly disappointed. I could not even bring myself to finish the book. And I don't understand how so many people have given it 5 stars!First of all, just in the quarter of the book that I managed to get through, there are multiple rapes. It's not to [...]

  6. Definately not an easy book to get into, for numerous reasons (such as writing style, the slightly confusing names, etc), but once I got going, I found that I could not put it down. I had to find out what what happened next. Though one thing that I was really impressed with was the detailed exploration of the whole concept of shamanism and what it entails for a shaman (in this case, a Dreamer). Not everyone may understand the whole concept of Dreaming, The One, The Dance and all that, but they w [...]

  7. This is the first is a very long and still ongoing series of books. Even though each book stands alone as its own complete story there are nuances and references that, while not tying them all together, add another layer of depth to the world that the authors create and they all lead back to this book.The characters are engaging and believable, with strengths and weaknesses as well as flaws. The story is the classic grand scale brother against brother battle that engulf their entire world. It's [...]

  8. See my full thoughts here: youtube/watch?v=Kw8kvPut yourself in the following scenario: For years you and your family have been at war. Not a modern war with an army marching through your land and bombs dropping from overhead, this is raiding warfare. You spend every moment knowing a band of warriors could charge into your camp, driving a spear into your gut, burning down your primitive homes, and carrying off anything of value. They see you as less than human, if you're unlucky enough to be cap [...]

  9. Years ago, I read a few of Christian Jacq’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 Jacq’s books and the Gears’ books are definite misses for me.I think there’s a lesson to be learned here, and I say this as an archaeologist who has toyed with the idea of writing hist [...]

  10. This was not my type of book. I got lost in all the weird names. Some of the natural objects named in the book were "Mother Wind" (of course this would be the wind), "Long Dark" (winter), "Father Sun" (sun), "Grandfather Brown Bear" or "Grandfather White Bear" (bears) "Long Light" (summer) Cloud Mother" and "Blue Sky Man", "Monster Children's War" (northern lights).Some of the character names were even worse. Here are some of them: "Throw Bones, Broken Branch, Red Star, Wolf Dreamer and Runs in [...]

  11. This book is the beginning of a series of truly awesome reading. When I checked it out in the library it was for a college assignment. However, when I saw how long it was I did not think I could finish it. But soon I became so engrossed with the characters I had a hard time putting it down. The author describes the people and surroundings so well it wisks you away to that time period. I could see the people in my mind and feel their feelings. I could see the landscape of the area, feel the cold, [...]

  12. 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, unique stories filled with details about each Native American tribe but with brilliant, twisting plots, action and mysticism. I learned a [...]

  13. I have had this series on my shelves for along time, and just recently picked up the first one. I had a hard time putting it down. the authors bring you to intense relationship with their characters, that make you root for this or that one, and breaks your heart when one dies. Any author that can bring me to emotion when a character is lost is worth reading! I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

  14. I read the first two or three of these, probably hoping they'd fill the gap waiting for the next Earth's Children book to come out (this was a looong time ago, obvs). Sadly, I found them lacking. The writing is pedestrian at best and the characters were little more than caricatures.

  15. People of the Wolf (North America's Forgotten Past, #1)Gear, W. MichaelGear, Kathleen O'neal Review: People of the wolf the wonderful story of a boy finding the way into a new world, the dynamics of twins of light fighting darkness. Twin brothers born from rape, are living in a dying world. The people are pushed to the edge of survival. Faced with the edge of the world (a wall of ice) and the others (a section of their own people separated by conflict so far in the past it is not remembered) the [...]

  16. People of the Wolf - Definitely must read this book first in the series. Although the setting was very cold and it made you feel cold sometimes it was fantastic reading. I also really enjoyed People of the Lakes. Have read the whole series but like these two the most. If you enjoy learning about ancient peoples, hunting, spirituality, survival, customs, their journeys, both the negative and the positive, nothing is really glossed over, it feels quite real, then you will enjoy these two books esp [...]

  17. This entire series is EXCELLENT. It's educational, gripping, romantic, exciting, mystical, it's many genres all rolled into one. I won't list all the books on cuz there are just too many, but I will tell you the ones I remember the most and were probably what I would consider, the "best".People of the EarthPeople of the SeaPeople of the LightningPeople of the Lakes** Very very good!People of the RiverThere are a few news ones also! Yay! So, if you are interested in how the various Native Americ [...]

  18. I have not been able to put this series down since I first found it a few months ago. It is written by a husband and wife who are both Archaeologists. They have written a series of books called The First North Americans, as well as each writing their own individual books. Though the stories are mainly fictional, they are supplemented by real archaeological and historical findings and facts. Very intense at moments and really sad at others, overall, an excellent read.

  19. Not to be missed. Especially by fans of Clan of the Cave Bear. Unbelievably good writing and the book(series) is based on a real tribe and their beliefs and lifestyles. These two authors aer archeologists and actually studied the tribal remains etc. before writing each of these books. Years of study and learning have gone into each of these amazing books.

  20. I devoured ALL of these books. At times the flow of descriptive data about the local flora and fauna can be daunting but I found it to be enriching and informative for the most part. The Relationships, Character strugles and the dynamics of survival are spectacular.

  21. I really enjoyed this book and the complex storyline and multidimensional characters. It was both well-researched and respectful of Native American culture. I look forward to reading further titles in this saga.

  22. This is the first book in the saga of Prehistoric North America.Many groups of people have been traveling from the north (possibly Alaska) down to around the Wyoming area (each book has an introduction of what brings the story on--this one is about a Clovis Point (actually found in Wyoming) and the archeologists that find it). There is the group called The Others, with many factions, and one called the People. Both have Spirit People--those that either sing, visions or dreams.Runs In Light has v [...]

  23. This book really had an impact on me. I didn't want to read it yet because I could feel that there'd be contents in it I wasn't sure I was ready for. I picked it up because a friend and myself were going to read it together. There was a lot of spiritual information and messages that I know for sure that I've been ignoring or haven't accepted readily enough. It gave me a lot to think about as far as my duties on this Earth. Also, having read People of the Lakes and River before this I think I lik [...]

  24. So, I've been reading this book for a while now, and I finished it a few days ago. It took me about 6 weeks to read (reading a chapter or two each night), because it is just so long. I loved the premise of this one--well, I love any fantasy novels set in prehistoric times--but I have mixed feelings on this book. The descriptions and imagery were great. No problem there. Each scene felt real and authentic. The writers--a husband and wife team--are archaeologists and you can tell from reading that [...]

  25. People of the Wolf is the first book in The First North Americans series. The series numbers into the teens now, so if you're looking to start a long term reading project, this is probably a good one to go for. Although I do have to say, this first book was pretty chaotic.Two brothers, born of rape, have very different destinies. Runs with Light is given a dream, one that could potentially save his people, although it involves a perilous journey under Ice into a new world. Raven Hunter is the wa [...]

  26. People of the Wolf is an historical novel by husband and wife co-authors and the first in The First North Americans series. The story explores the migration of humans into pre-historic North America.The plot concerns a band of Siberian hunters pursuing game across Beringia during the last Ice Age. Spurred by a vision he had while on a hunt, a young tribesman named Runs in Light, later called Wolf Dreamer, leads a handful of tribes people, in rebellion against the tribal shaman, south down the Yu [...]

  27. Loved this series, I own every book! I also re-read them often. It's great way to have a fun look into Native American History here in the America's. Written by a husband and wife combo, one is an Archaeologist and State Historian, the other is an Anthropologist. They breathe life into the history of the Native American Peoples. I have always been fascinated and felt more in touch with Mother Nature (like Indians), and having been born in Lawton, Oklahoma near a large Indian Reservation and not [...]
