It started with a few bards and minstrels they used their eyes and ears listened to rumors and legends and dying old men And they used their imagination and their essential humanness With these ingredients they created a whole new history of Mankind; a tapestry of events which was passed on by word of mouth and so could never become dull inflexible or accurate It is called the Song of EarthThis is a legend of future earth set somewhere in Latin America at a time when the uneasy but stable co existence of true humans and specialists humans with animal genes is threatened by the reintroduction of metal working Events are shaped by the machinations of Staruin an imprisoned alien who is using his knowledge of the happentracks alternate futures to try to effect his release In this story Staruin is trying to ensure that Karina a jaguar descended felina girl bears the child of a true human since one of their descendants will play a part in his releaseI liked the descriptions of felina society the sailtracks and the kikihuahua examples but unfortunately I found that the continual reminders that Karina's story is one of the legends that make up The Song of Earth kept breaking the spell of the story

Few true humans remain on the future Earth where caimen shrugleggers and felinas dominate The people are descendents of crocodiles alien races and jaguars and they are much different than the h. Not much in this book of any redeeming value It is an exceedingly clumsy and ill conceived piece of writing that never gets any kind of compelling story goingCat Karina is the first of I believe five books set in this same world It is populated by true humans ie normal people as well as people that have genes of various animals spliced into them hence Cat Karina There are also crocodile people llama people and others People live primitively with some long past event apparently having wiped out most technological advancements One major problem plaguing the book is the near total absence of effective world building We learn almost nothing about why anything in this world is the way it is Instead things are just sort tossed at the reader helter skelter There is some powerful being that lives in space that is part of the plot somehow but we learn virtually nothing about it The tumps Why are there still working railroad tracks when there is almost nothing else in the world I mean they don't even use metal Then there is the unexplained tensions between the different human ish groups and an extended political allegory of some kind that is just very tedious I never came to care at all about any of the characters in the book who are largely interchangeable The whole thing has a very half assed feel One hilarious blurb on the back cover of my version of the book was from the Encyclopedia of Science fiction who called Coney one of the most prolific SF authors of the 1970s I guess that is praise Last point my version of the book had a cover that I would have been deeply embarrassed if anyone had seen me reading since it made the novel look like softcore pornography which it is not maybe it would have been better if it was So careful of what edition you are buying if you do purchase this silly and boring novel

Cat KarinaUmans they are products of genetic experiments created to perform specific functions Some work in the swampy lands others are the strong burden bearers but none are as beautiful as the felines. I'm not a cat person so it's probably just as well the felinos and felinas don't act like cats I loved the writing in this book when I read it in the late seventies and it really pulled me into the story For me it was written with a great deal of imagination It serves as a good taster for the epic Song Of Earth series
