People of the Songtrail, which will be published in May, is the interaction between the Viking explorers and native people in North America. During the 900 -1200 AD little warming period of the Medieval period which increased mobility of sea travel. This resource shows the reader the actual written record of the travelers of the epic Sagas that gave rise to the legend of men like Eric the Red. Explaining the social dynamics and religious reasons for these far a field travels into the unknown. The book is the usual well researched and an understandable text which the Gears use to shed light on the tangled history of viking exploration.
Read information about the authorMy professional life began in the dark basement of the Museum of Cultural History in Los Angeles, where I was cataloguing three-hundred-year-old Guatemalan saint carvings. I quit this fascinating job and moved to Wyoming to work for the U.S. Department of the Interior as a historian and archaeologist. When I finally understood the error of my ways I moved to Wyoming and started writing books. Since then, I've authored or co-authored 54 novels and around 200 non-fiction publications.
I love writing. And buffalo. And hiking the wilds of Wyoming's backcountry.
I'm married (until he comes to his senses) to W. Michael Gear, the novelist and my co-author, and we live at the edge of the Wind River Indian Reservation in the Owl Creek mountains of Wyoming. We're contented watching buffalo and writing books.
