Remnants of humanity escape the great flood and make their way to safety in prehistoric Ireland. A singer and his companions survive the volcanic eruption that destroys the palace of Minos in Crete. A farmer's wife in 19th-century New Hampshire discovers the secrets of a sacred stone, and in the 21st century, George Burning Feather seeks the wisdom of the past to combat the ultimate natural disaster--the death of the air. The best-selling author of Lion of Ireland (1983. o.p.) turns her storytelling gift to a New Age eco-fantasy that reflects the need for reconciliation with the forces of nature. Though the connections among the four stories comprising this volume emerge only in the final story, each tale bears its own compelling message. Libraries should strongly consider this title for fantasy or general fiction collections.
