Description

A young Navajo woman dies from a mysterious sickness so horrifying and so swift that even the wisest of her tribe's medicine people cannot save her. But she is not the only victim. Across the sprawling vastness of Navajoland, this silent killer is striking without warning, choking off its victims' air supply, drowning them in their own fluids.Dr. Push Foster, recently arrived from Atlanta for a two-year stint at the Indian Health Service Hospital at Hashke, is quickly plunged into the medical mystery. But the trail of information only leads to more questions. Even though modern Western medicine ultimately identifies the hantavirus and its source, to the stricken Navajo, who recognize something more frightening even than a deadly virus at work, this knowledge is irrelevant.In the desolate landscape that is the Navajo Reservation, Push Foster, himself a mixed-blood Choctaw, discovers that there are facts - and then there is the truth. And that the two are not always the same.show more
