Shaun Taylor-Corbett narrates this historical novel featuring a 12-year-old Iroquois boy. Okwaho overcomes his anger at his best friend's kidnapping when he hears stories of the Peacemaker, told by a visitor to his village. By listening to these tales, he learns about the formation of the peaceful Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) Confederacy. Taylor-Corbett, who is himself of Native American descent, provides a calm and soothing voice for the Peacemaker, as well as realistic accents for the other characters. While the overarching story of overcoming anger and other effects of war could rarely be more timely, the folktales that are integrated throughout will also resonate with listeners, making this an audiobook that will have broad appeal.
