"Is it not the custom of your clan to delegate every three days one of your members to take the life of some ruler?" they asked.

One of the Reds smiled, knowingly. "Only one insignificant life in three days?! How little you know the Anarchists. I want you to understand, sirs, it is our wont to use just five minutes for each act, which means 864 lives in three days."

This was more than the most hardened press detective could stand. They fled in terror.

Carl Schurz, politician and career hunter by profession, died May 14th. He was met at the gate of Hell by the secretary of that institution with the following question, "Were you not one of the enthusiasts for the battle of freedom, in your young days?"

Being a fantasy lover, I chose this book to take a break from my usual genre. I remembered liking "Island of the Blue Dolphins" and "Sweetgrass" as a child -- so I thought I would like this one. Though, my interest was low in the beginning, I'm so glad I stuck with it. Nearing the final pages, I...more

This is the first book in one of my most favorite series in the world. And the first time I truly fell in love with a book. I read this when I was a teenager and I still often go back to reread it. In fact, this may be my favorite story (the trilogy as a whole) - I was fortunate to have a good bo...more

I won't summarize this book since others have written some very good synopses already. I'll just talk about what grabbed me.

Harrison's rich prose describes a civilization she has obviously researched very carefully. I was caught up right away in the lives of a Native American tribe and enjoying t...more

Mother Earth Father Sky is the first book in a trilogy that takes us into the lives of an ancient North American people in Alaska. If that sounds boring, don’t be fooled.

To be honest, I hardly know what to say about this book. At the writing of this review (first posted on my blog), having just f...more

A decent stone age novel, at last! I have to say I really rather enjoyed this one. It opened strongly, grabbing onto my interest, and it kept a hold of it by adding more twists and obstacles that got me desperately rooting for the protagonist, Chagak, and wanting to find out the resolution. The d...more

I read this book about 15 years ago and loved it. The author spent 4 years researching the Aleut people and then put together a fabulous trilogy. Her writing is excellent-visual, and I fell right into the book. I had trouble finding the books, but Sue Harrison has a website now so you can order d...more

Set in 7056 BC, this was a fascinating look at the prehistoric inhabitants of the Aleutian Islands. I learned quite a bit about their customs, beliefs and hardships, which is what I liked most about this book. I loved reading about the survival skills and the respect the people had towards nature...more
