Cole has not visited his home—Wounded Sky First Nation—for a decade, but when a “friend” implores him to visit he relents. His return is greeted with suspicion and derision by many, especially when mysterious events, including death and disease, follow him wherever he goes. A past encounter with the trickster Coyote gave him special powers, but can he use them to save his community? This engaging novel combines Indigenous ideas and teachings with suspenseful adventure and can launch discussions, research, and critical, creative, and reflective thinking. Useful as a read-aloud, class, lit circle, book club, or independent read.
