Facilitator Joseph has outlasted entire civilizations during his twenty-thousand years of service to Dr. Zeus, the twenty-fourth century Company that created immortal operatives like him to preserve history and culture. The year is 1699 and Joseph is now in Alta California, to imitate an ancient Native-American Coyote god, and save the native Chumash from the white Europeans. He has the help of the Botanist Mendoza, who hasn't got over the death of her lover Nicholas, in Elizabethan England.

"Baker's second instalment in her Company series proves a witty match to In the Garden of Iden... [and a] deliciously wicked platform for satirizing past, present and all-too-likely future human frailties.... Baker nails her 20th-century targets: societal, religious and oh-so-personal hypocrisy."-Publishers Weekly on Sky Coyote"
