    1 thought on “People of the Fire”

    1. If you liked the series by Auel you will like this one by W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear. People of the Fire is the second in the series, following People of the Wolf. Situated in a drought stricken land, a small group of people work hard to keep the dreams of their ancestors alive. It's a love story, an adventure story and a view of the people who lived in this era.

    2. A respectful presentation of Native American Beliefs wrapped in an exciting tale!When I read book 1 of this series, PEOPLE OF THE WOLF, I was hooked. Picking up PEOPLE OF THE FIRE just ensnared me more! I have never read a book series so deep and compelling; so rich and complete.I am a huge fan of historical fiction and loving archaeology, I was initially drawn to this tale. The Native American culture, which is so respectfully presented in this book (and the entire series), fascinated me. I am [...]

    3. This is the second book in the series of the Prehistoric America.The time has moved on from the People of the Wolf. First Man (the Wolf Man) has been watching. So has the wolf bundle, an important item in the spiritual world. One leader of the Red Hand doesn't believe in its power and the other leader of the People really doesn't either--he only believes in what his mother "dreamed." He too doesn't really believe in the power of the wolf bundle.Little Dancer feels the power of the wolf bundle an [...]

    4. Where's the fire?Seriously, where is the fire?Oh wait, there it is. 20 pages from the end.The first 300 pages of this book do nothing. It's only in the last 150 pages that the story gets remotely interesting and begins to come together. Once I figured out where the writers were going, I enjoyed it, but were I not such a stickler for finishing books I would have abandoned it long ago.It starts off as a ripoff of the first book in the series - a boy with a special destiny and a complicated parenta [...]

    5. People of the Fire is the second book in the First North Americans series by the Gears. I don't really think you have to read the books in order. Honestly I read the first book first and was still a little confused at times.Drought is upon the land and has brought strife between the different peoples who dwell in the mountains and the plains. The plains people have a dominating leader who is striving to make women inferior. Little Dancer, a boy who has been with them for awhile, is suddenly thru [...]

    7. To say that I enjoyed this book is an understatement. It flows as it grips you, it's that entertaining. The themes are familiar to regular readers of the First Americans series; climate change, young men coming to grips with their abilities, strong women leading the way. Put that to one side and you really do have a superbly written tale that takes us through the life of young Little Dancer as he is exposed to the evil actions of men who seek power, sees those he loves suffer and becomes aware o [...]

    8. Well.I LOVED his first book. Unique and interesting. But reading this onee plot was EXACTLY the same as the first book. The characters had different names, but not different roles/personalities from the first book. The setting, farther to the south and a couple hundred years later, but again, basically the same.ng with, understanding and surviving, mother nature. WTH? Really? And he wrote something like 16 more just like it.

    9. I am a huge fan of the books by W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear. Their stories will pull you in and the incredible amount of research the authors have done lend credibility to their work. That research, combined with an immense talent for description that allows readers to feel fully immersed in the time period, will ensure that readers will keep coming back to these authors again and again.I rate this book as 5 out of 5 Stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    10. The Wolf Bundle chooses; not always well, but in the end, it will have its way. In a time before our memory, people struggle to survive.

    11. Ok reading though perhaps a bit too much "spirit" talk. Use of modern concepts, such as "minute" is a bit disconcerting. Planr medicine and healing practices would have been interesting to include.Also, iPad Kindle reader doesn't format correctly--missing the section breaks.

    12. People of the Fire (North America's Forgotten Past, #2)Gear, W. MichaelGear, Kathleen O'nealThe world is dying. In drought and over hunting the animals are disappearing. The people are starving. The wolf bundle the legacy of first Man has weakened, all it power and prestige has been drawn out. In a gamble First Man and the wolf bundle being a quest to renew the wolf bundle and find a path to save the world. Clear water is a dreamer, who is given a vision she does not like. But she follows the pa [...]

    13. This book had a number of uncomfortable moments, as it covers a time in Native American prehistory where the environment is drastically impinging on the lives of the characters. It seemed even more violent and bloody than People of the Wolf, so be advised.But prehistory was filled with violence. Life was pretty gritty, especially during a great drought in the plains and Rocky Mountains, where this book takes place. That said, I really liked this book. I have pretty much their entire series and A [...]

    14. Incredibly disappointing compared to "People of the Wolf". Rather than gradually introducing the characters, the reader is inundated with them in the first 20-30 pages. This forced me to return to earlier pages just to get it straight who is whod who is who relative to the Red Hand and the Short Buffalo. As another reviewer noted, the plot does eventually get interesting. Unfortunately, the plot had no direction or interest until about the 80% mark. Further, the plot turns out to not be all that [...]

    15. This book was was a strange one for me. It was the fourth book of this series I have read (no I dont read them in order, but they aren't all tied together) and it was weak overall especially in comparison to People of the Silence and People of the Lakes. The first 100 pages are great and then the book just gets so boring in the next 200 pages, so boring and luck-luster I was about to put it down but then the last 100 pages picked back up to a great ending so for that 2 stars. The book is primari [...]

    16. In prehistoric times a great drought is hitting the area on the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains. Clear Water conceives a child and runs away from an abusive husband stealing the power bundle. After Little Dancer is born she is killed while hunting buffalo and the child is fostered with Sage Root. Little Dancer has the potential of vast power through dreaming. When Sage Root is killed for resisting a false dreamer, Little Dancer and his foster father go into exile. As he grows and resists t [...]

    17. The Gears are the best at what they do, which is writing about pre-history based on archeology, creating a plausible fictional story to help us to understand the facts and thus preserve our own Native American history. Kathleen and Michael have been my lamplight in becoming a Native American historical fiction writer. They alone are responsible for peeking my interest in our dim past and have provided a window to that time and place of which they write. If you desire to see the past of our unkno [...]

    18. I enjoyed People of the Wolf more, but this was definitely a good sequel. I am not sure I enjoyed the end though. With Wolf Dreamer, we understood him giving up on his love - because he died, basically. For Fire Dancer, he could have went back home. The Epilogue made it worse,when you realize she lived the rest of her life alone, waiting on him. It was a rather sad ending, when you consider she was so important to the Power by teaching him Love. Did he forget the lesson already, just because he [...]

    21. I really like the idea of this series, and found the first book pretty entertaining/thought-provoking. This second installment, however, felt almost like a more complicated rehash of the first story. There were too many characters that filled almost identical roles to characters in the first. Even within the second book, there were too many characters who's roles were paralleled. For example, I had a hard time with the antagonists. Events would happen in Blood Bear's story line that (to me) got [...]

    22. I have no idea why I find these stories so fascinating. Great characters. Great mythology. And wonderful descriptions of our own northwest as it underwent climate change and people hunting the buffalo to near extinction (perhaps the first time)7000 years ago. I was wrong about the main character appearing in People of the EarthI think this book is set about 1000 years prior to People of the Earth. This includes the story of the discovery of how to harvest wheat and other grains which will save b [...]

    23. I've read quite a few from this series and REALLY enjoy them! This one must be my least favorite. It's a little slow with not much happening (until the end), most of the characters (except for the old 'witch') seem so unstable (mentally and emotionally) it was frustrating, and a lot of the names are similar - so yes, at times confusing *maybe I wasn't paying enough attention*It's still a good read, and I'm happy I picked it up.

    24. I have not been able to put this series down since I first found it a few months ago. It is written by a husband and wife who are both Archaeologists. They have written a series of books called The First North Americans, as well as each writing their own individual books. Though the stories are mainly fictional, they are supplemented by real archaeological and historical findings and facts. Very intense at moments and really sad at others, overall, an excellent read.

    26. The story of a young man who is dealing with power is the theme of this book. Its theme is much the same as the first book of the series, with the exception of the main character being a much younger man. The author seems to have an affinity for strong evil men, attacking women and seemingly helpless young men. The story is still interesting and the characters are interesting.

    27. Well, I couldn't do it I tried, but I got 100 pages from the end and just didn't care :( It has all of the makings for a wonderful book, love and adventure, but for some reason, it just doesn't read comfortably. I've read the first one as well. A friend raved about this series, maybe I will come back to it after a long break.
