Trapped in a world where the legends of Tewa mythology walk free, a young girl must solve an ancient mystery in order to return to her own world.
It is the beginning of summer, and twelve-year-old Maggie is angry about her family’s move from San Diego to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Lonely and resentful at her new circumstances, Maggie and her dog Jack explore their new neighborhood and soon find the shady trail leading up to the Rio Grande.
While playing by the river, Jack startles a strange young boy, Ash. Maggie is slowly drawn away from the real world of her family and into Ash’s land, one populated by myths and legends. Threatening all is Shriveled Corn Man, a powerful sorcerer in search of vengeance for wrongs long past.
Guided by the trickster Coyote and the cryptic Spider Old Woman, Maggie and Jack must travel across Ash’s world in order to free her new friend and his people.
What they're saying about it:
"I found this story on a recommendation by Lindsay Buroker, and I am very thankful for that tip! I had to read it straight through without any interruptions. I don't remember reading about Old Spider Woman before, and I really liked her part, as well as Jack's. I almost always enjoy any Coyote story, and this was another great variation.
The characters are well-developed, interesting, and believable. The plot and action are the same. What else can I say? Read this story and support this author."--Amazon Reviewer
"I recently read Coyote's Daughter and found it delightful. Unlike other fantasy books, this one captures your imagination so that you totally believe in Ash's world and the ability to go from one world to the other. I am looking forward to reading more by this author."--Amazon Reviewer
