Summary: Attis McCurtain, mixed-blood Vietnam vet, is floating down a California river with a bullet through his heart, like some kind of ritual sacrifice. Others assume he is a suicide, but his friend Mundo Morales suspects foul play. Attis's younger brother Cole is summoned by their Uncle Luther, Choctaw patriarch, to a primordial Mississippi swamp where he is told to find and bury his brother's bones and so bring peace to Attis's restless spirit. As Cole and Mundo travel o ...show moren their parallel quests, guided by their Choctaw and Mexican Catholic religious traditions, they approach the desolate heart of evil, in a world out of balance and desperately in need of healing. Living characters and dead move naturally between dreams or visions and the "normal" world. In the process the protagonists not only solve the mystery of Attis's murder, but also-by way of a series of sad, funny, illuminating incidents-learn who they are as mixed-bloods in contemporary America. Opening with the fiery, life-denying words of Puritan Jonathan Edwards: "The arrows of death fly unseen at noon-day; the sharpest sight can't discern them, "this novel tells us of people who know where to look and learn what to see. It is concerned finally with the necessity of a reconciliation with the Earth through a return to older ways.
