If you are someone who enjoys reading intelligently written books by an author who has done intensive research on her subject, and if you are interested in our primitive ancestors, then I highly recommend the Winds of Change series of books by Bonnye Matthews, four at this point, that present a fresh outlook on Neanderthal people, starting 75,00 years ago in the first books and coming up to 35,000 years ago in the most current volume. Bonnye presents a fascinating and fully developed new perspective on the intelligence and social behavior regarding Neanderthals that goes beyond the scope of traditional theories.

You will be enchanted with the characters Bonnye has created to tell her very creative stories, and will certainly relate to much that they went through in their lives which modern humans still have to deal with in their daily lives.

Her books are well worth reading, and are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble online, as well as on

I hope you will look into the Winds of Change Series.

Bonnye gave our local writer’s guild a presentation on prehistoric mankind and their migration to the new worlds.

Her research of over five years is extensive and referenced in the back of each of her five books, Winds of Change and the fictional characters therein.

Her research cited other researched evidence of man’s habitation in North America much earlier than we have been led to believe. Archaeologists have found evidence of earlier presence dating back to 14,000---65,000 in New Mexico and one site in Southern Mexico dating 200,000---245,000 years ago.

Bonnye is convinced these earlier people where much smarter than they have been giving credit for and were able to build boats, navigate back and forth across oceans and settled in North and South America much earlier than originally thought.

Based on her presentation to our group I ended up buying all five of the books and her two DVD’s. After Bonney’s presentation I stopped and bought a carton of coffee ice cream to read a new release of Tom Clancy’s book.

Couldn’t wait to get home to enjoy the ice cream and Clancy’s new book. After I settled in I thought I would read a few pages to see what this first book Ki’ti’s Story was about.

I should have known better. Well I’ll just peek at this second story and see what it is like before starting Tom Clancy’s novel, I couldn’t wait. Well you know how that went. Wish there was more.

Such an enjoyment, having finished the Winds of Change now, I can settle in and read Tom Clancy’s book. But alas, I am out of Coffee ice cream.

5.0 out of 5 stars for this brilliant writer’s stroke gives us The Winds of Change blow in every layer of this magnificient novel.

On the surface it is simply of coming-of-age story of a rebel child, who is destined to be the spiritual leader of her people. While we travel along with her on a physical journey first to explore the virgin land of Alaska, then in time to follow her maturation from child to adult, we are also immersed in her spiritual journeys to the realm of self discovery and divine revelation.

Under the layer of Tuksook’s personal story we witness the life of a people moving and adapting to a new land. The Winds of Change blow in gusts for them. After their momentous migration their life soon settles into a pleasant, slumber-like rhythm, to be disturbed time and again by unusual events: a volcano erupting, a visitor from the far North, new arrivals from the old continent, a violent earthquake.

To the superficial reader, these two layers of the book would already provide pleasant entertainment. Let’s dig deeper, however, to discover the true treasures of this novel!

In the next layer we see a mightly evolution of Wisdom, god of the ancients. True, he was there in the previous volumes of the series, but more as a vague presence. Here, mostly via Tuksook’s spiritual journeys, Wisdom becomes a palpable entity, defined with sophistication… to the point where the reader may start wondering how much of the writer’s own spiritual experience found its way onto the pages.

Down to the next layer! It is not only in depicting Wisdom that we can witness how Bonnye Matthews gains more confidence as a writer. This fourth book of The Winds of Change is significantly more ambitious than its predecessors. In the first three novels the author has tackled the question of how different human subspecies mixed over the prehistoric millennia, but it is here, in this volume, that she dares forecast the future of mankind for the novel’s protagonist. She explains to Tuksook how the ancient human variants will disappear with only certain traits of the different subspecies surviving in the far future – and she does it in such a language that a human being living in 35000 B.C., lacking knowledge of genetics, would understand. Of course, what is a vision of the future for Tuksook, is all retrospect for us, but it does not matter, for this brilliant writer’s stroke gives us, readers a very clear, plain insight into where the Neanderthals, the Denisovans, Homo erectus and other, as-yet unidentified ancient humans are today.

Finally, below all these layers, the writes does one more thing. By scratching at our past, she is – probably for the first time – earnestly scratching at our own future. Witness the ancient, virgin land of Alaska! People living in peace in a land of bounty, where even a gold nugget matters only as a thing of beauty and not as an object of value or a symbol of power. We all know that this Eden is no more. However, we also all know that there is immense beauty still in our world of the present. By teaching her readers how much mankind has already lost, Bonnye Matthews warns us without warning how much more we may lose – for the age of warfare and personal ambition which is a forecast for Tuksook is far from being over in our world of today.

Bonnye Matthews is one writer who dares and succeeds on multiple levels. Some of her brave interpretations of the peopling of the Americas are just now – finally – being openly echoed by scientifically acknowledged sources (see National Geographic Magazine, January 2015). Humans in the Cook Inlet in 35000 B.C. ? A stone-age Atlantis in Alaska, destroyed by the sea? A lost civilization of Meganthropus in Asia? Who knows how many more of her visions of our deep past will be justified by future archaeologists?

"Winds of Change" by Bonnye Matthews is an exceptionally and impressively researched five volume series of prehistoric novels focused upon a theme of the Peopling of the Americas. Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, this outstanding and original series is comprised of "Ki'Ti's Story, 75,000 BC" (9781594333125, $19.95 PB, $8.79 Kindle, 350pp); "Manak-Na's Story, 75,000 BC" (9781594333736, $19.95 PB, $8.79 Kindle, 352pp); "Zamimolo's Story: 50,000 BC" (9781594334566, $19.95 PB, $8.79 Kindle, 266pp); Tuksook's Story: 35,000 BC" (9781594335211, $19.95 PB, $9.49 Kindle, 354pp); and "The Seal Eaters, 20,000 BC" (9781594336003, $19.95 PB, $9.95 Kindle, 314pp).

This inherently fascinating series deals with such diverse anthropological issues as when humans first came to the North and America continents, where did the first humans to occupy this new world come from, and just who were they? The currently popular notion that humans didn't cross over from either Asia or Europe until around 10,000 years ago is becoming increasingly obsolete given the continued advances in anthropological and archaeological research.

What author Bonnye Mathews has managed to do is to expertly craft a series of notably entertaining novels that incorporates new data into an historical fictional accounts that bring these ancient peoples alive in a way that will prove inherently fascinating, informative, and entertaining for the non-specialist general reader. Each of these five volumes can be read as 'stand alone' works by themselves, but enthusiastic readers will find themselves wanting to engage in what amounts to a more than 50,000 year saga and read all five volumes, especially when reading them in the above chronological order. Simply stated, this outstanding "Winds of Change" series is very highly and enthusiastically recommended for personal reading lists, as well as both community and academic library Historical Fiction collections.
