This is a good read, get it. This piece of historical fiction is an interesting and worthy philosophical effort. As I've grown older, I've discovered how much the narrative of American history has been controlled.
For example, it was only recently that I even heard of John Hanson, who was the first president of the Continental Congress and could be called the first president of the United States. The fact that I had never even heard this man's name before even though he is of undebatable historical importance , has opened up my perspective to historical theories outside the realm of what is currently accepted.
I had heard of the Iriguois Constitution before, and have no difficulty believing that this strong government could have influenced the formation of the current US Constitution more than it has ever been given credit. In "Two Rivers" you are given a "best guess" first hand look at that amazing historical time in a sincere effort to give credit where credit is due.
Of course, it's impossible to have an entirely accurate representation of an age long since passed, but I think Zoe Saadia does a wonderful job filling in the gaps of our knowledge with logical and well-researched storytelling. This is a pretty interesting novel and a must read for any fan of historical fiction with a focus on the contributing factors to the birth of the United States.
Zoe Saadia has an exquisite talent of pulling her readers into times past and making it even more alluring and real than the present. We are taken yet again to times before Columbus on a journey to dissolve war forever and embrace the idea of peace. This is what Two Rivers wants but the elders are slow to agree. For them war has always been the way of the tribes and it will never change. But this doesn't deter Two Rivers and he sets out on the path of his destiny to become the Great Peacemaker. Well written and entertaining.
