Description

Two daughters of a Portland weatherman have been killed for no apparent reason, and John Denson and his Native American partner, Willie Prettybird, are called from their remote cabins on Whorehouse meadow in the Cascade Mountains to help. But for once Denson is stumped - this is a trail he can't seem to follow. Frustrated by his inability to trace the criminal monster, Denson sets down his scepticism and accepts, provisionally, Prettybird's shamanistic ways. Out-of-body flying? Entering the spirit of an animal? Can it be true? Can Denson solve murders by playing Carlos Castaneda to Willie's Don Juan? Willie offers Denson a challenge. Since your rational ways aren't working, open the door to shamanism. Leave your body and seek to join the spirit of an animal who might be a guide. Fearing that he will never come back, Denson takes the risk. The trail revealed smells of bear galls, ancient Chinese medicine, and right-wing malcontents. Denson, the tracker, is profoundly changed by his discoveries.
