“Then a piercing scream cut the wailing short. One of the women pointed to the healer’s skeleton. ‘Look, it’s gone. It’s missing. The sacred spear has been stolen!'”

Wolf has always been an outsider to is community, with his strange dreams and stargazing. When he is saved by a secretive stranger called Crow, he brings her into his village. Some time later, someone breaks into the sacred burial mound and steals a precious spear belonging to a dead healer. Convinced that Crow stole the spear, Wolf is banished by his village to find it. But the world outside the village is harsh and new… will Wolf find the strength he needs to find the spear?

The first of a four book series (The Wolfsong Series) set in the late Neolithic era, The Stolen Spear follows the spiritual and physical journey of Wolf and his friends. Written by Saviour Pirotta, master of historical fiction for children.
