The Edge of the WorldUnknown - 1993
From William Sarabande, whose brilliantnbsp;nbsp;re-creation of the prehistoric world of the First Americannbsp;nbsp;has thrilled readers everywhere, comes a major newnbsp;nbsp;novel that awakens us to the true spirit of ournbsp;nbsp;ancestors. Following their destiny into an unknownnbsp;nbsp;land took more than courage--it demanded a beliefnbsp;nbsp;in a future they would never see, a certainty thatnbsp;nbsp;braving a path no human had ever taken was theirnbsp;nbsp;only choice. Now, in a time of mystery and magic,nbsp;nbsp;when all they had protected the People from theirnbsp;nbsp;enemies for the eons of prehistory seemed to benbsp;nbsp;vanishing along with the animals they once hunted,nbsp;nbsp;the young shaman Cha-kwena must break a terrifyingnbsp;nbsp;taboo, estranging him from his woman and hisnbsp;nbsp;tribe. Driven by a vision, he vows to follow thenbsp;nbsp;forbidden trail of the mammoth to where the fate of hisnbsp;nbsp;kind will be known: extinction or the possibilitynbsp;nbsp;of a land where all their dreams may become real.
