About the Author:

Pamela Sargent is the author of several highly praised novels. Gregory Benford described her novel Venus of Dreams (1986) as "A new high point in humanistic science fiction." Venus of Shadows (1988), the sequel, was called "alive with humanity, moving, and memorable," by Locus. The Shore of Women (1986), one of Sargent's best-known books, was praised as "a compelling and emotionally involving novel" by Publishers Weekly. The Washington Post Book World has called her "one of the genre's best writers."

Sargent is also the author of Earthseed (1983), chosen as a Best Book for Young Adults by the American Library Association, and two collections of short fiction, Starshadows (1977) and The Best of Pamela Sargent (1987). She has won the Nebula Award, the Locus Award, and has been a finalist for the Hugo Award. Ruler of the Sky (1993), Sargent's epic historical novel about Genghis Khan, tells the Mongol conqueror's story largely from the points-of-view of women.

Review:

"A great book ... a sparkling American epic and a fitting pendant to RULER OF THE SKY. We applaud an unerringsense of history - both the actual and the possible, all garnished with tid-bits - such as Edison recording the treaty on his magic voice machine. (!!!)" -- Charles L. Harness

"Climb the Wind is a most enjoyable and entertaining new alternate history adventure which I believe brings a new dimension to the form....Pamela Sargent advances this interesting speculation within a well-structured adventure story involving all sorts of intriguing rogues and idealists and just plain heroes and heroines...the resolution is quite credible and the reaching of it consistently entertaining. Someone really ought to make a movie of the thing." -- Gahan Wilson, Realms of Fantasy

"Climb the Wind is one of the rare alternate histories that really needed to be written an important premise backed up with solid research and good storytelling. Reading this book is an illuminating experience." -- M.J. Engh

"Pamela Sargent is a clever and talented author, and Climb the Wind is highly creative, fascinating, and enjoyable." -- -Janelle Taylor

"Pamela Sargent is an explorer, an innovator . . . she's always a few years ahead of the pack." -- David Brin, author of Foundation's Triumph

"Pamela Sargent loads her Springfield and heads into the post-Civil War era with a rousing tale of what might have happened had the Indians united against white encroachment. If Harry Turtledove has been driving the Alternate America stage, Pamela is now riding shotgun." -- Jack McDevitt
