Baker & Taylor
Having vowed revenge on the tribesmen who attacked her, a young woman adopts a handicapped infant and sets in motion events that lead to the boy's growth into a respected storyteller and peacemaker

Returning to the harsh and breathtaking landscape she so vividly recreated in her bestselling Mother Earth, Father Sky, author Sue Harrison brings us the first book of her remarkable Storyteller Saga. It is the tale of Chakliux, abandoned as a baby to die on the Arctic ice, only to be rescued and raised to manhood by K'os, a cold and cunning woman seeking vengeance on the men who defiled her. At the age of twenty, Chakliux occupies an honored place as his tribe's storyteller, and is sent to a neighboring enemy village to secure the peace by marrying the shaman's daughter. But a shocking double murder sets the storyteller on an extraordinary journey across the frozen wastes in search of the strange truth about the offenses for which his people have long suffered..and about the hateful, scheming woman who raised him, who may turn out to be his most dangerous enemy.
