Hunting the Ghost Dancer is an exciting and wonderful adventure set at the dawn of human life, when our species were hunter-gatherers sharing the world with dwindling numbers of our Neanderthal "cousins". The characters are vividly drawn and stay with you long after the story is over. The story is an epic adventure in which surviving members of an enslaved clan seek a new life in the northern forests and tundra where they encounter a "Ghost Dancer", maybe the last of his kind, a giant mystical Neanderthal who channels spirits - light and dark - who dwell in the planet's magnetic field. His quest for a place among the spirits of light, aided and accompanied by a young human female, informs much of the story. I've read this novel maybe least half a dozen times. Like all great tales, it never gets old. A.A. Attanasio writes high adventure in lyrical language that lifts the spirit of the reader even as it entertains and enchants. If you've not read his books yet, you have a great adventure awaiting you...
