Shaman Book description:

There is Thorn, a shaman himself. He lives to pass down his wisdom and his stories -- to teach those who would follow in his footsteps.

There is Heather, the healer who, in many ways, holds the clan together.

There is Elga, an outsider and the bringer of change.

And then there is Loon, the next shaman, who is determined to find his own path. But in a world so treacherous, that journey is never simple -- and where it may lead is never certain.

SHAMAN is a powerful, thrilling and heart-breaking story of one young man's journey into adulthood -- and an awe-inspiring vision of how we lived thirty thousand years ago.

Editorial Reviews From Barnes & Noble

In his latest effort, Kim Stanley Robinson startles us by turning back the clock tens of thousands of years. The Nebula Award winning author of 2312 asks us to join in the rituals and listen to the stories of a Cro Magnon shaman master, but this absorbing Ice Age novel is no dreamy snow globe fiction. The realm of Thom, Heather, and Loon is about to experience changes and challenges that not even their evocative cave paintings can adequately convey. Imaginative science fiction with a scientific feel.

    I did not expect him to read to us for about 40 minutes. The q& a was decent. He brought up some good ideas. Never read any of his stuff. I think I will look at the Galileo book first.
