People of the Masks (The First North Americans, Book 10)
2 journalers for this copy...
I got this slightly-battered paperback from the ongoing charity-sale shelves at a local Hannaford's. It's from a historical-fiction series following different Native American tribes, long before the first arrival of Europeans; this book's set roughly in 1000 A. D., in the area around the Great Lakes. It focuses on a particular Iroquois tribe and their friends and foes, with emphasis on a long-prophesied "child of power" who's ostensibly the son of a forest spirit. Tribes go to war to possess this powerful child - and then the boy, along with one young friend, escapes across the winter forest... Lots of detail about daily life, tribal mores, spiritual beliefs, and individual relationships.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
When he looked up again Tas had gone. Rising to join the others, he caught sight of something small and abandoned on the floor. "Tas you forgot your pipe." He picked it up and then saw words carved into the wood he had not seen before. Find the music, find the magic.
"Did you carve this?"
Tas did not turn. "Yes," he said, reluctantly. "I have to leave it."
"But, Tas, why?"
Tas squared his shoulders as though firming some resolve. But still he did not turn. "Because the shepherd said that it could only be used once. Thats why I can't get the pipe to play that song-or any song. I've used the magic." He took a deep breath and went on. "And he said that once I found the magic I had the pass the pipe on." he paused and then he did turn, a scamp's humor in his long brown eyes. "It's going to be a long winter. I'm going to leave it here for someone else to find." "Snowsong" by Nancy Varian Berberick
