The tribes on the Peninsula are victims of cannibalism, plunder and genocide, from a marauding tribe of scavengers escaping the ravages of the mainland. To add to the hardship of the tribes on the Peninsula, the climate is changing, the game of the woods are few, and many predict a great hunger will come. But one dwindling tribe on the Peninsula, The Plains People, are no longer reliant on hunting and gathering. They are masters of trade, gardens, metals and hieroglyphics, creating the finest arrowheads and the first books. However, their ingeniousness, resilience and superiority has made them outcasts, and all that remains of them are one old Chief and his five warrior daughters.

With growing uncertainty on the Peninsula, the Witch Doctor Zauer calls for renewed reverence to the Sun God. But Swifty, a young genius who invents the concept of zero, is a believer of knowledge over superstition. He feels set apart from his own kind and to follow his beliefs he must defect to all that remains of the smaller and technologically advanced Plains People, and face the consequences from his own tribe. It isnt easy being the chosen ones.
