"Set way before the mists of time, when humankind was taking its first defiant steps to master the earth, this brilliantly imagined tale returns to the same setting of Joan Wolf's first novel of prehistory, Daughter of the Red Deer. The tribes who call themselves the Kindred and live in the lush green valleys of Southern France have already encountered the rivalries and desires that divide societies while uniting passionate men and women with a force no power, ancient or modern, has ever deigned to break." "One of the special tribes among the Kindred, the Tribe of the Red Deer alone is still ruled by the priestess/chief called the Mistress. Through cabalistic rites in mysterious caves, she teachers her band to share in the sacred gifts of the Great Mother. But change is coming on the chill wind that howls through the stark Pyrenees. Alarming reports are being circulated during Kindred gatherings about a race of conquerors swooping down from the North. Yet the Tribe's Mistress, Arika, gives little credence to such wild stories. Her attention is captured by the ambition of the proud, handsome young Ronan, the son she gave away at birth; the charisma of the small, dark-haired girl, Nel, her dead sister's child whose extraordinary talents with animals and healing will someday make her a dangerous rival; and the lust of beautiful, laughing, sensual Morna, Arika's self-centered daughter who is intent on seducing Ronan, the one warrior forbidden to her because he is her half-brother." "As ageless hungers for love and power become a catalyst in the battle for the tribe's destiny, Ronan is cast out. While struggling to form a tribe of his own, he undertakes a journey to an Eden-like secret valley and discovers that the fierce band of northerners has mastered the art of horsemanship and is moving south in a wave of conquest. The terrifying threat is that these brutal warriors will enslave the Kindred women, murder their men, and burn their villages to ashes. Ronan's challenge is his vision of forming a partnership with the magnificent wild horse. But first he must forge an alliance among the tribes of the Kindred and reunite with Nel, the girl he truly loves and whose magical gifts with animals may help him tame a herd of wild horses before the grasslands quake with the sounds of hooves and shouts of invaders." "As the Kindred race to stem the Horsemasters' relentless advance, the dawn of humankind comes alive. Peopled with complex and fascinating characters, this richly textured novel of prehistory is packed with adventure, war, love, revenge, and passion - all the stuff of life."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

To Patty, best of sisters, best of friends.
I would like to express my appreciation to two particular friends who were of invaluable assistance to me in the writing of The Horsemasters
First, thanks to Edith Layton Felber, who helped me sort through a chaos of ideas and characters to come up with the shape of a novel.
And I would also like to acknowledge Elsa, my beautiful bay thoroughbred mare, whose shadow stands behind all of the horses in this book.
