Feb 26, Cathy Ryan rated it it was amazing Shelves: historical-fiction , native-american. So with the message received well, Two Rivers and Teneki, along with a group of supporters, travel back to the Onondaga people to convince them to join the alliance. It proves as difficult as they expected.
Tadodaho, the war chief of Onondaga town, is far from interested in a message of peace. He is feared among his people and suspected of having evil powers. An opportune natural phenomenon, the like of which Two Rivers, or anyone else, had never seen occurs to lend weight to his words as he is regarded with awe. She makes a momentous decision. Frustrated at her forced inactivity she decides to act. So, both Seketa and Onheda settle on a plan of action, having waited long enough, and begin their own journeys to find and help their men.
They are full of courage, strength of character and have lost patience with standing by and doing nothing. Neither of them have any idea how desperate a situation they will find themselves in. This story kept me in suspense wondering how it would play out. Although the main thrust of the story is the peace process, which is incredible, I did like the added personal aspect which just gave a heightened sense of feeling to the story and that, along with the ending, is very emotional. The characters are wonderful and their development is brilliant, especially Teneki, grown now into a formidable warrior.
My thanks to Zoe Saadia for this review copy. Jul 07, Brenda Roberson rated it really liked it. With two maidens from two different tribes vying for Two Rivers attentions his only thought is to bring the message of peace to all nations that will listen.
The old ways no longer work. It is time for a change. A change for the better. With three Nations firmly in agreement with him, Two Rivers must now head back to the difficult Onondagas. This will prove to be a mighty task since High Springs and Onondaga Town were on the verge of war. Tadodaho, the War Chief of Onondaga Town, is a very dangerous man. Even though his title is War Chief he seems to be the leader of the whole town. It is thought that he has special powers that he uses for evil.
The bloodthirsty Mountain People are united in nothing but their hatred of others. They cannot even agree amongst themselves. Two Rivers surely has his work cut out for him. His dream of a gathering of Five Nations is strong and hopefully attainable. But at what cost? Will Onheda be in grave danger as she heads out alone to Onondaga Town to gather information and smooth the way for Two Rivers and his message?
Unknowingly, in Onondaga Town, Onheda and Seketa will meet. Each not knowing that the other is tightly knit to one of the Peace warriors. What dangers await this growing group of people who are trying to spread the message of peace to all Nations? In the clutches of the dangerous Tadodaho, what will become of the two women who have pierced the hearts of our two Peace Warriors?
Jun 16, Marilyn Buehler rated it it was amazing. I loved this book.
It is the 3rd in the Peacemaker series. Much of the story is based on fact, only the names have been changed out of respect for the descendants of the original Native Americans.
It is set in the 12th century in a land not yet discovered by Europeans. The Peacemaker puts his life and that of his close friend in mortal danger many times to bring the good tidings of peace and how to achieve it, explaining that there would be more time and energy to grown needed crops, hunt, fish, I loved this book.
The Peacemaker puts his life and that of his close friend in mortal danger many times to bring the good tidings of peace and how to achieve it, explaining that there would be more time and energy to grown needed crops, hunt, fish, etc, if so much time wasn't spent warring over trivial stuff. Apr 19, Daryl Williams rated it it was amazing. This book provides a great insight into the peace process that united the 5 nations in what is today upstate New York. The author adds personal touches to provide additional interest but the main theme is that peace makes for better lives than constant warring.
I thoroughly enjoyed every minite reading this book!.
Sep 23, Kristin rated it it was amazing Shelves: 5-stars. If you think there's suspense and frustrations in the first two books, wait until you get to this book! I loved all the sepereate storylines coming together in such an exciting way! The series could have ended here, but there's a fourth novel. I'm excited to find out what's in store for everyone. History of peace between 5 Indian Nation Again to think that the great peacemaker way back in the 12th century had something to do with our Constitution many hundreds of years later is quite an accomplishment.
Sep 26, Groovie Zen rated it it was amazing Shelves: my-favorite-books. A good ending to the trilogy, predictable from the Peacemaker's aspect, but absolutely unpredictable as the other characters were concerned.

And you just might learn about the origins of some of our U. Another fascinating story I can't wait to read the conclusion. This has kept me transfixed through the story tip I get finally to the end. This is the best of the books of the Peacemaker Series so far. The background of the Peacemaker and his efforts to unite the five tribes into a larger nation without any of them giving up their independence continues.
He has now convinced the People of the Flint, and with them, he visits the People of the Standing Stone to try to get them to join the alliance. He is successful, but it takes a long time listening to endless objections and having to explain things over and over. And all this when This is the best of the books of the Peacemaker Series so far.
