As Informative As It Is Thrilling


Envision an ancient world as you travel through the Ice Age in this epic story of survival under extraordinarily challenging conditions. In Shaman, author Kim Stanley Robinsontakes us on a right of passage with Loon, a young man trying to fulfill his destiny as a shaman of his tribe.

Enter the vivid landscape of a world covered in ice and snow and watch Loon try to survive the ritualistic passage into adulthood. The environment is his adversary and his salvation as he begins this trial with nothing but instinct and determination.

Hugo and Nebula award winner Kim Stanley Robinson writes intense, expressive science fiction with a solid ability to create new worlds. He is also a scientist, and his careful attention to the ecological details of this story makes it as informative as it is thrilling. Check out this book and breathe in the icy air in this pathway through the Ice Age.
