Summary (From the publisher):

From deep in the mists of time, Cecelia Holland has drawn forth this tale of life on the Salisbury Plain, among the Stone Age Britons who built Stonehenge. It is the story of hunters, of kings and matriarchs, and of one outcast boy who becomes a shaman, burning with a vision that will take shape in mighty pillars of stone.

Blurbs:
  • "A first-class storyteller, Holland convinces the reader that only someone obsessed with building a gateway to the heavens could have created something as incredible as Stonehenge." People
  • "[Holland] is at all times a superb storyteller, and her talents have never been better displayed. Sho not only re-creates a prehistoric people with every aspect of their life opened up for us; she also makes us share that life." Cleveland Plain Dealer
  • "Politics in prehistoric times is Holland's theme in this intelligently and lushly developed saga. [Pillar of the Sky] moves with great energy but without neglecting rich detail; the dim past springs to buoyant and believable life." Booklist
  • "With her engrossing narrative, some nicely developed characters, and excellent descriptions of the primitive lifestyle, Holland succeeds in stretching our imagination; she has breathed life into those forty-ton monoliths that for all those centuries have been standing so mutely on the Salisbury Plain."
