The stories explore the realm of the supernatural as it complements and shadows everyday life. These are ghost stories in the nontraditional sense tales of the spirit of Native America. This is the second in the series (Turtle Dream is Book One) also sensitively drawn by Sid Hausman in a style that recaptures the authentic style of old western illustration. The book is an intriguing look at legend and real life, the stories featuring real people, most of them Native American friends of the author.

About the Author
Gerald Hausman calls himself a "native of the world" after living in so many places in the United States and the West Indies. He spent more than twenty years in New Mexico where many of his American Indian folktales were collected and published. Born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1945, Hausman has been a storyteller almost since birth. His more than 70 books attest to his love of folklore, a passion instilled by his mother who painted the portraits of Native American chiefs. During his thirty-five years as a storyteller, Gerald has entertained children of all ages at such places as The Kennedy Center, Harvard University, St John's College and in schools from one end of the country to the other. Five audio books have come out in recent years and two of Gerald's books have been made into animated and folkloric films. His books have also been translated into a dozen foreign languages.
