First sentence
The filmy green trees on the riverbank beckoned to him. He made his way through patches of sand, clusters of spiky yuccas and thickets of cottonwood trees. He smelled the gurgling water of the crick ahead of him. Drumming Boy peered on; the surface of the river bed bubbled. He was amazed but he was not afraid.

Reality and ancient lore collide as two young men come of age; worlds apart, separated by generations.
