The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez meets Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng in a captivating family drama with the intensity of An Untamed State by Roxane Gay.

“A beautifully written … story. The work of a master craftsman.” Grady Harp, Vine Voice

“Endlessly compelling. A fascinating fusion of forms.” Writer's Digest

When Aidan Little Boy visits his sister on a peyote church property in South Dakota, he encounters a religious cult run by an apparently superhuman leader. Suddenly his nondescript life becomes tangled in a world that has grown disturbing and strange.

In a series of remarkable events, the ancient beings of Native American folktales are manipulated by people with strong connections to the parallel world of spirits and ghosts. Soon Aidan uncovers evidence that his sister and the rapidly growing congregation are in danger. He must understand these unknown powerful forces before the Reparation, a ceremony that will slaughter thousands of innocents.

This complex and surreal novel merges folktales, history, and the contemporary with magical realism in a hypnotically addictive original tale.
