In this compelling new series for older readers, each story follows a band of children living in prehistoric times. Noli has an amazing gift--the spirit of the Moonhawk comes to her in dreams and guides her. But then the spirit deserts her when she needs it most--when her world is rocked by earthquakes and floods, and the band is stalked by a demon lion.
