Bernard Albaugh’s book, Red Wolf and Little Coyote: Their Trail is a captivating saga of characters – late woodland era hunters and gatherers - facing common human dreams of their future, hope for love, and the challenges of life. Set against a backdrop of the pristine world just west of the Mississippi River along the Des Moines River in what is now Iowa, the very human story is absorbing, pulling the reader into a world both familiar and unique. Growing into young men, the two main characters learn the rituals and meaning of their place in their tribal society. It is a book of the transcendent and universal story of how each life – no matter when it is lived - influences the flow of history through acts of loyalty, love and courage. Readers who have enjoyed such books as Morgan Llyewelyn’s The Horse Goddess or Jean Auel’s Clan of the Cave Bear, are sure to enjoy this work of Albaugh’s.
