It was two hundred years before Columbus. The spirits of nature walked the earth…And the people of the American Southwest lived in intimate harmony with the land, the sky, and the seasons. Here the beautiful, blue eyed Kwani, gifted with magical vision, and Tolonqua, Hunting Chief of the Towa, joined in a passion that defied all taboos. Here Tolonqua fought to build a great fortress city to protect his clan against the dread Pawnee and other foes. Here Kwani battled suspicion and envy to preserve her place as She Who Remembers, and pass on her powers to a daughter marked at birth for an awesome destiny. Here Kwani's son risked death for honor and for love. Here, in an audiobook of unsurpassed vividness and narrative sweep, a vanished world comes to unforgettable life.

Yes. It is such a wonderful story, that I am sure I will listen to it once more. I stayed up late just listen more and could hardly lay the book down.
All main characters are so rich and real that it feels as if you know them.
I had not listened to this narrator before, but she did a wonderful job. She gave the characters very realistic voices.
This book is a real page turner and kept me listening with pleasure for hours.
I read these books 10 years ago and it was just as good now as it was then.
All of it, very moving and just so real!
Thank you for this wonderful journey. It's a story I will enjoy again and again. Enjoyed reading this with my 8 year old son. He agrees it was a great book.
I used to read under the covers with a flashlight so Mom and Dad wouldn't make me turn off my light and go to sleep!
I liked this book, for the most part, a bit slow in a few spots, but well written and well performed, can't wait to listen to book three
I love this book,.This is the second book of Kwani. I cannot tell you what was my favorite part in this book. It would spoil it for you. But I do have a few remembering part. Great story and great narrator. A must read.
