In this sequel to Zadayi Red, Caleb Fox continues his fantasy retelling of the stories and history of the first peoples of America, the tribes we know today as the Cherokee. 

Shonan and his son Aku are as different as night and day–the father a down-to-earth War Chief, leader of his village; his son a young shape-shifter who has been forbidden by his father to practice his gift from the gods.  But such gifts are given to the people for the protection of the tribe, and Aku will not long be able to obey his father.

This lovely, intense journey among the earliest inhabitants of North America will thrill readers with deep truths and timeless adventure.
