People of the Longhouse: North America's Forgotten Past

Born in a time of violent upheaval, young Odion and his little sister, Tutelo, live in fear that one day Yellowtail Village will be attacked. When that day comes, and Odion and Tutelo are marched away as slaves, Odion's only hope is that his parents are coming to rescue them. They are. But War Chief Koracoo and Deputy Gonda think they are tracking an ordinary war party herding captive women and children to an enemy village. Instead, they are following close on the heels of a legendary evil.

Publisher's Summary

Born in a time of violent upheaval, young Odion and his little sister, Tutelo, live in fear that one day Yellowtail Village will be attacked. When that day comes, and Odion and Tutelo are marched away as slaves, Odion's only hope is that his parents are coming to rescue them.

They are. But War Chief Koracoo and Deputy Gonda think they are tracking an ordinary war party herding captive women and children to an enemy village. Instead, they are following close on the heels of a legendary evil, an old witch-woman named Gannajero, who captures children for her own purposes.

What the Critics Say

"The multitalented Gears, husband-and-wife archaeologists and best-selling authors, score a literary bull's-eye as they weave another vivid narrative thread into their stunning tapestry of Native Americana." (Booklist)

    "Mixed Feelings"

    I had mixed feelings on this one. Like all the Gear's novels it was well researched, well writen, violent, and interesting. I was interested all the way through, a good read, well narrated too. It has well developed charactors, from the female war chief Koracoo, her estranged husband and deputy Gonda, vicious and scary witch Ganajero, and many others. My problem was the end. It felt like the the authors ran out of time or something and just cut off the book. Things were building up to an exciting climax then it's over. Still worth listening to, just slightly frustrating. I wish Audible would get one of their truly fantastic ones, like "People of the Lakes" (their best in my opinion) or "People of the Lightning". Back to this one, it is violent, violence towards children this time, not super graphic, but still might be hard for some to take. Might be more of an adult's book, although I think I started reading their books as a teenager, so I'm sure some teens would enjoy it too.

    "WHAT HAPPENED///"

    I have to say that disappointing doesn't begin to describe my opinion of this book. What happened, their fixin to go and get the other children.......then what?
    I've read all of the "People Of The..." books and this was a true let down. Can I get my money back or do the Gears really want to loose so many readers with this horrible offer?

    "where is the rest of the story?"

    Coming to the end of the audio book, I went looking for the missing sections. What happened? I am left with a tangle of plot lines.
