Cherime MacFarlaneabout this book: The cliff dwellings fascinated me. During my teen and young adult years I lived in Arizona. Dad understood more about living off the land than anyone else I knew. I made it a point to learn all he could teach me. Those two factors combined in my mind to bring Nightwind and JoJo together in this story of a multi-cultural and inter-racial culture clash.
The after times. A culture of cooperation as a large family holds sway in the canyon country. But even within the atmosphere which tries to encourage people to help each other basic human emotions of envy and hate fester. One woman starts a campaign which drives a young man to choose the solitary life of a hunter for the family. Different from those he lives with, Nightwind stays away from the village as much as possible.
Things are changing. More predators are chasing the prey farther into the wild lands. He must go deeper to find game.
JoJo's people herd cattle and use horses to move the animals from winter to summer camp. They value status and material things over people and she will go to the highest bidder. But until her half-brother is ready to take over as a tracker, the hereditary position is hers.
Rejection of the man who wants her may cost JoJo her life. Luck is with her. The solitary hunter and his dog rescue her from a pack of rats. Nightwind knows he can't allow her to go back to her people. He made a find of tremendous significance and his people need to get there first. To stay alive, JoJo must become his shadow.
