An anthropologist by training, Judith Berman has published on myth, translation, and the history of anthropological research in a number of academic journals and books, and her translations of Native American myths and tales have been included in recent collections for the general public.From Booklist:
*Starred Review* Richly blending mythology and folktale, Berman catapults readers into a fantastic world of shamanic wars, talking animals, and immortal beings of frightening power and awesome beauty. In keeping with the mystery of the place, young Cloud has shed overnight the bear part of her identity and wakened as a 12-year-old girl, which outrages and threatens her stepfather, King Rumble. Years before, Rumble murdered Cloud's bear father, Lord Stink; ate the bear's flesh for its power; and magically bound its ghost. Drunk on power, Rumble neither knows nor cares that the legendary Lord Stink's death has ripped a hole in the fabric of the world. Unmagical, outcast Cloud, who wants only to be a child and to be loved, is the only one who can repair the damage. Her monumental task still unrevealed to her, Cloud flees her village and Rumble's murderous threats. Thus begins a long and perilous yet exciting and often wondrous journey to wholeness. On the way Cloud will fall into many deeply depressing situations, but Berman's imagination seems to know no bounds. For as desperate as are the problems Cloud faces, their solutions are correspondingly ingenious. Berman's utterly absorbing, unforgettable first novel announces a truly original and unique voice in fantasy. Paula Luedtke
