Continuing the trail of adventures of Bluefeather Fellini, this new novel powerfully illustrates award-winning writer Max Evans's first-hand knowledge of all the cultures living in the Southwest and the mystical deserts and mountains that shape the region's character. The book also reveals Evans's piercing insight into the creatures, domestic and wild, real and mythical, that this vast, sometimes overwhelming, landscape of the soul possesses. A tender love story with a strong, dedicated woman, plus savage battles with the beasts (the worst being man), the book offers a wondrous, revealing look at what might have created the world and what may bring it to and end. There is also the Underground, which is included in the belief of man Indian nations and pueblos: the power of the stars; and an occasional interference of the gods mixed with a gritty reality salted with humour. The lifetime travels of Bluefeather Fellini give a unique look at the magic of the Southwest and the universality of it all.
