Great story as always provided by these authors.
  RolandB | Feb 29, 2012 |
"The Dawn Country" continues the saga begun in "People of the Longhouse", based on archaeological discoveries and the oral history of the Iroquoian people. Female war chief Koracoo and deputy Gonda have rescued their children, Odion and Tutelo, from the witch Gannajero, but other children are still held captive and they continue to pursue, picking up new allies along the way. Told from multiple points of view, the story is one long exciting chase to the final showdown at the end. A note at the end of the novel indicates that there's at least one more story to be told in this series, however.

I felt a little cheated at the end of "People of the Longhouse," because it didn't resolve much, but "The Dawn Country" is much more satisfying. It might have worked better as one long book. ( )

War Cheif Koracoo and Deputy Gonda of the Standing Stone People have successfully rescued their children. Odion and Tutelo, from Gannajero the Trader. Known as The Crow, Gannajero is a figure out of nightmare - a witch who steals children.
