I bought People of the Lightning a couple of weeks before my son was born back when it was a new publication I thought I would have time for reading but soon declined into the only 2 modes I would have for a long time Mother and Sleep It took FOREVER to finish because I just didn't have the time or energy for it but I really liked this book a lot This is the first Gear novel I ever read and it hooked me I like novels set in deep history and this one takes place in Florida 10000 years ago As a lifelong Floridian the setting was why I bought it Is it high literature using silver dollar words Not even close but it's still engaging Since the authors are also archaeologists there are historically accurate tidbits throughout but this series of standalone books is about intra tribal dynamics competition for resources with other tribes and native American mysticism I'm not going to lie there's a good dose of soap opera in these books too People of the Lightning is the story of the great warrior woman Musselwhite and the three men in her life First is her true love Diver who has been taken by a rival clan Thinking he is dead the leaders of her tribe marry her to Pondwader a young man both feared and revered for his albinism Since an albino has not been born in a thousand years tribal elders assume he is the one whose destructive destiny has been foretold Last is Cottonmouth the warrior of a rival tribe and former lover of Musselwhite His jealousy and need for vengeance drives the action throughout the storyThere is one freuent review topic I want to say something about It always surprises me to see how many people complain about all the physical and sexual violence that occurs in this series The truth is that this was commonplace even accepted behavior all over the world until VERY recently To omit such motivations from these stories would not be telling the truth about what freuently drives people Imo the characters in these books are tough and reading the stories of how they rise above these experiences is often inspiring I say these are fun enjoyable books and they don't have to be read in order which is a good thing because this series is huge approaching 30 books now I think I've been reading these since the mid 90's and I'm still picking up older entries I haven't gotten around to yet I've gone several years without reading a People of the book but I always come back to them eventually I'm going to make an earnest effort to read at least a couple of them a year so maybe I'll get to them all before I die lol This isn't great literature but it's good for what it is light fiction about ancient Native Americans
