The Reindeer People is part one of a two book sequence which concludes with Wolf's Brother, originally published in 1988. It was written as a one-part story with the working title "Herdlord's Healer" [1], but was then edited to be published in two volumes because it would have been too thick as a paperback [2]. A later one volume hardback edition containing both "The Reindeer People" and "Wolf's Brother" was titled A Saga of the Reindeer People.

The story is of Kerlew and his mother Tillu and their life in a frozen, winter-ravaged land and the dangers and magics they have to face.
