Having survived the warring tribe of the north, Trei makes his way back home, leaving his twin sister Souk with the Northmen as their shaman. After struggling through snowy mountains, he is taken in and looked after for a time by the Sea People, before he heads off again on his journey to find his own tribe, the People of the Canyons. As his departure from his own people had reportedly broken the laws of the tribe, will they accept him back, given the prize he brings with him? And can Souk's dream of peace with the Northmen's neighbouring tribes be realised?

Author Biography - Vince Ford
Born in Eltham, Taranaki, New Zealand - 1970. Vince Ford started his published career by winning the 1998 Tom Fitzgibbon Award for a previously unpublished writer, with 2MUCH4U, which went on to win the 2000 NZ Post Children's Book Award for Junior Fiction and an honour award for a first-time author. This initial success has been followed by the publication of 2 sequel titles to 2MUCH4U, plus a title in the SPORTMAX series of sport-focused stories for the 11-13 year interest level, and more recently with A Handful of Blue - a more dramatic story centered around a small community and a whale stranding, published in 2003. He is now working on a very different project - a trilogy of stories looking at the development of the man as hunter - Chronicles of Stone.
