Really enjoyed this one as much for the research and detail of pre-colonial America as for the story itself. Well done on both counts, and I'm off for another from the Gears. ( )

Award-winning archaeologists Michael and Kathleen Gear spin a vivid and captivating tale around one of the most controversial archaeological discoveries in the world: the Kennewick Man-a Caucasoid male mummy dating back more than 9,000 years, found in the Pacific Northwest on the banks of the Columbia River!
A white man in North America more than 9,000 years ago? What was he doing there?
With the terrifying grandeur of melting glaciers as a backdrop, People of the Raven reveals animals and humans struggling for survival amidst massive environmental change. Mammoths, mastodons, and giant lions have become extinct, and Rain Bear, the chief of Sandy Point Village, knows his struggling Raven People may be next.
