As the lambent light from the slumbering fire dances across the roof of the cave, a young girl wakes from a dream. Kec's dream tells her that her clan is in jeopardy, and that Mother Earth expects her to do something to save her people. A magic child will be sent to help her.Far away, Strong Branch, a powerful Shaman of his people, has his own dream. The Great Spirit sends him a warning about a future of conflict and killing.Kec's people are very simple, but they are strong and powerful enough to have survived the ice ages of Pleistocene Europe, by force, for over one-hundred-thousand years. Strong Branch's people are late comers from an alien world far to the South. They bring an advanced technology that allows them to utilize the environment in ways Kec's people never could.As the population of the aliens has grown over a period of more than twenty-thousand years, the stress on the environment has become critical. Kec and Strong Branch must play their parts in a microcosm of the greater struggle for survival. The conclusion of their struggle will establish a new story and a new history for each of their peoples.
