A woman living near a Navajo reservation in the Southwestern United States re-awakens the years-old mystery of the disappearance of a young Native American woman when her pick-up truck tumbles into the fictional Littlejack River. The vision of a coyote, the counsel of a wise Navajo woman who is the grandmother of the deceased, and a mystical desert experience allow her to solve not only the mystery of what happened to the teenager but also discover the truth about herself and her place —  not just in this desert community but in the world at large.  Look for this award-winning story on Amazon.com in their Kindle library.
