Kaaknu the Volvon A novel by James Benney
An awkward, amateurish attempt to tell an important story.
Kaaknu the Volvon tribal chieftan was a real person. Recorded history shows that he attained prominent stature during his lifetime, which started in 1770 in a benign 10,000 year-old Native American cultural environment around Mount Diablo, east of the San Francisco Bay.
It is hard not to appreciate the fantastic cultural stability that his people managed to sustain through hundreds of generations.
