About the Book

This is a continuing saga about Kele, a boy who lived many thousands of years ago in the rugged area now known as Southwest Texas.It is the age of hunter-gatherers, and Kele and his clan must live off the land and what nature provides for them. It is a story involving his family and his difficult journey from their Rock Shelter home in search of a new home in a land far away. It is a story steeped in exciting, and often perilous adventures as the family journeys across new and unfamiliar territory. They must endure the harsh terrain and weather, ravages of wild animals, and their difficult search for shelter and food. Kele is now almost 16 years of age, having proven himself worthy of manhood 4 years ago. He has become the best hunter in his clan, and is a leader among his people. His destiny is yet to be discovered and fulfilled, however, as he discovers along the way.
