About the Book
The White Water Woman ceremony, celebrated for hundreds of years in New Mexico, is sacred among the Mescalero Apaches. This year, 2014, a young woman and a baby will die in early June during this ceremony. It is up to Sam Rifle, an ageless Di-Yin, holy man in the Native American Church, to right this wrong. A jet airplane is stolen from Holloman Air Force base and deliberately crashed in Otero County, near Bent, New Mexico, killing the pilot. Sheriff David Ortiz y Pino investigates. Charlie Three-Fingers is found dead near the crash site, but the sack of peyote he was bringing to the Native American Church is missing. Are these four deaths connected and if so, why?
