Orleans, lost disinherited dispossessed and happy. For my people walking blindly spreading joy, losing time. For my people blundering and groping and floundering in.
For my people standing staring trying to fashion a better way. Let a new earth rise. Let another world be born. Let a. Let a second. Let a beauty full of. Let the martial songs. This story takes place in the Northwest, along the Columbia River, before the Europeans arrived. It is well written and absolutely fascinating, especially the 'vision' scenes where Asku, the hero of the book I was asked to read and review this book by the author, and furnished a book in exchange for an honest review.
It is well written and absolutely fascinating, especially the 'vision' scenes where Asku, the hero of the book, sees his ancestor and learns from and about him. I found this book to be a page-turner, and had trouble putting it down. Although it isn't what I would call an action book or an adrenalin gusher , I became very involved with the characters, and had to turn the page to find out what they did next, how they extricated themselves from the situations they got into.
The hero and his cohorts, are young, mid teens, and while this book is more than suitable for the Young Adult readers if they aren't afraid of pages , it is not a YA book.
It is just a well executed book for readers of any age. Asku comes of age in this book. The son of the Chief, he is in love with a young maid of his tribe, and learns he must sacrifice his hoped for marriage to her, and marry a maid from one of the Sea Tribes—a woman he's never met—but alliances must be formed and or maintained.
He reacts in a reasonable manner for a boy in love with someone else, but learns what he must. When his father is mortally wounded, his anger takes over, and he and his friends track the killer, leaving the village and the people without a leader, without a Chief's strength and wisdom. His future as Chief hangs on the line. Asku and the characters in this book act and react as one would expect them to, not as all-knowing adults, but as boys and girls who, by the end of the book, become men and women.
There are maps in the back of the book; I would have preferred them in the front, and perhaps on white instead of what looked like old skin.
I recognized them, but could not read them. Again, I read an electronic version. If you are at all interested in the history, or in this case, pre-history, of the Northwest and the people who lived here, I think you will enjoy this book tremendously. I know I am excited that this is Book 1, which tells me that there will be a Book 2, and I can hardly wait to read it!

The goal is not to create an overly romantic and unrealistic celebration of black people but to explain to black people that although they have the ability to seize control of their own destiny, they continue to dismantle their own liberation.
