A dream. Fight for survival. Heart of the Bison
Ancient artifacts in the caves of Europe and the Middle East indicate that in the Neandertal culture women and children gathered around the fire in the cave to work and play. Men set up small fiefdoms around the walls of the cave, separated from the women and children. Men were the hunters and the leaders of the clans. Women bore and cared for the children that were the future of the clan. The Neandertal trilogy begins about 25,000 years ago when a young Neandertal girl receives a dream from Mother Earth showing Kec that she is chosen to save her people. Legends of her people talk of powerful female leaders called Shorecs who are rarely called when the future of the clan is threatened. Kec becomes Shorec and her name is changed to Kectu. She makes many mistakes and her faith in her calling falters as circumstances force her to travel far from her clan searching for the meaning of her calling.
