Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A young Neanderthal boy dreams that he is following the spirit of the she-bear, and he awakens in a future time. Having left his tribe behind, he remains faithful to the spiritual beliefs of his people and teaches himself the ways of a shaman. Paul Garcia’s flat undertone for the boy, called Sam within his new world, reflects the character’s quiet effort to maintain his equilibrium as he learns language and establishes deep bonds with some of those he meets. As Sam grows older…Garcia subtly shifts his speech to show his growing confidence.” AudioFile
