Magnificent performance of a book I read yesrs ago

Mark Boyett made this deeply spiritiual , beautifully written work, come alive. I read this entire series soon after each book was written, and enjoyed them all. However, Boyett's narration embued this novel with power. His riveting performance is truly the work of a master storyteller; rich with poignant emotions, every syllable, every pause, fraught with meaning. I could easily follow all of the characters in the book due to the care he gave to each one's distinct 'voice'. I was lost in the story, the place and time, listening intently, all other thoughts driven from my mind. I was sad to have this book end. I hope Audible will bring us more books in this series, by this same highly skilled and gifted narrator.

North America's Forgotten Past

The People Series is one of the best... Love the History and Archaeology with the story plot. The Gear's do a wonderful job at making the story come to life. In order to enjoy this series you must read the people of the wolf first in order to understand the twins, light and dark. I own all the books, But it is nice to listen hands free and enjoy them once more.
Thank you Sue

Saw it in a whole new Light

I’ve read the PEOPLE SERIES for years. The audio version, tells the story with a different cadence then mine. I experienced it on a whole other level.
I’m so glad I tried it. I appreciate all the depth of the People in the story.
I can’t wait to listen to each one!
Side note: After 29 books, TOR is not publishing anymore PEOPLE BOOKS. Z I’m so grateful for all they have done. But I would also love more PEOPLE BOOKS.
PLEASE leave a review. That is how it’s decided.

Boring!!

This book was so boring, I could not finish it. I liked J. M. Auel's Earth's Children series a lot better.

The audible book changes the readers focus

People of the Wolf (North America's Forgotten Past, #1)
Gear, W. Michael

Audible : Something I noticed when listening to People of the wolf, on Audible. How much the first book gave foreshadowing to the series. Multiple times the dreamers, Heron, or even Wolf Dreamer talked about events that will become People of the River, People of the Silence, even People of the Lightning. I listened to the descriptions and could see the future in their words, and the past, as I have read the stories, and know how they go. It's amazing when you are listening to how much import something is that you did not think of before. Maybe it shows the power of the spoken word, and the marvel of the story teller.

It's all a spiral.

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 brothers are forced to confront each other, the world, and the spirits. One brother finds the path to light, a literal path to saving the people, by leading the people through a hole in the ice, and peace with the others. The Other brother embraces darkness drawing the tribes into raids and mutilations. Which path will the people follow? Which brother will save the people? Who has the true vision? This is the first book in an epic series, bringing light and dark in conflict over and over throughout the ages..... This is my favorite book of the series. I feel a close connection to Wolf Dreamer and can only dream of his ability.
Character list:
People of the wolf (crossing the ice bridge)

Dreamer: Runs in the light (birth name), Wolf dreamer(given after killing the wolf)

Ravenhunter: (birth name) twin, name was given after birth when he grasped a raven feather. Raven hunter is a false dreamer. He is good at making people question and not following the correct path.

Dreamer: Heron: Old woman who guided Wolf Dreamer, true dreamer left the tribe 20 years before because of Broken Branch who stole herhunter.

IceFire: father of the twins, dreamer White Tusk clan, was used by power to bring the twins into the world, in the end he learns that his sacrifices will be for all the people, and he will trade a son for a son.

DancingFox: Love interest, seen as a leader of the people in the future and give birth to a dreamer that will be the center of the web.

Crow Caller: Tribal shaman (false dreamer)

Power object: wolf skin

Totally worth it.

This was a fantastic trip down memory lane to my high school days. Mark Boyett did a fantastic job of this. Beautifully told and he certainly captures the moment and your imagination.
I really, really hope Audible continues the series with Mark performing them. Especially people of the Lakes.
