(From the publisher):
Who were the prehistoric people who built the mysterious nonument of Stonehenge? Their epic story is told by Azari, son of Jaun, as he sings of battle round the campfire.
Against his will, for he preferred making poems to fighting battles, Azari had to replace his injured oder brother, the warlike Prince Anai, as leader of the Twelve Tribes in their battle against the invading "longheads." Returning home victorious, the young Azari found himself caught in a conspiracy of power-hungry priests and rebellious chieftains. And his love for the captured enemy priestess, Neseato, made his position even more dangerous. Courage, honor, love and the effects of power on character are the masterfully interwoven themes of this compelling story of a young man not born to rule.
At the same time that Azari was growing to self-knowledge and maturity, the awesome temple of Stonhenge was slowly rising, King Jaun's tribute to the great sun god. Where, in the midst of a grassy plain, did these ancient people get their enormous slabs of stone, and how did they solve the problems of moving them and building with them? Modern scientific methods have come up with the answers to the age-old questions, and Christopher Hyde has skillfully blended the story of the temple with that of Azari and his people.
