Song of the River
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.
Sue Harrison grew up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and graduated summa cum laude from Lake Superior State University with a bachelor of arts degree in English language and literature. At age twenty-seven, inspired by the cold Upper Michigan forest that surrounded her home, and the outdoor survival skills she had learned from her father and her husband, Harrison began researching the people who understood best how to live in a harsh environment: the North American native peoples. She studied six Native American languages and completed extensive research on culture, geography, archaeology, and anthropology during the nine years she spent writing her first novel, Mother Earth Father Sky, the extraordinary story of a woman’s struggle for survival in the last Ice Age.
