Coyote - the trickster, thief, warrior, wizard, coward, clown, and savior - has come to call in these 10 stories set in the modern Navajo Nation.
"Reservation Monsters": Coyote teaches a young boy with a monster under his bed that most monsters are far worse than the ones that go bump in the night.
"The Dreaming Way": After Coyote reveals her hidden powers, a teenager must decide whether she will use them for good or evil.
"Love Like Thunder": After a school shooting, a strange creature sets up camp by the local cemetery, where he visits the dead so that he may live a few days longer.
"The Speed of Lightning": Shaun Sallabye, a famous high school runner, gets a talent boost from Coyote that will push him to his limits - if it doesn’t break him first.
"The Shooting Way": Jesse Benally doesn’t believe in witchcraft. When his aunt contracts a strange sickness, he meets with a medicine man who teaches him that native witches don’t care what he believes.
"Black Body": Fernando Gishi waits for his father to get out of prison, but when he finds the body of a dead girl in the desert, he must rely on his friends as a dark force reaches out to make a deal he can’t refuse.
"Changing Woman": Nellie Begay, a former combat nurse, is missing her daughter. When a supernatural force might know where she is, Nellie must find the strength to heal herself and talk to Changing Woman.
"The Darkest Roots Run Deep": Ronnie Long, a struggling maintenance worker, must look to his girlfriend and their unborn child in order to forgive the biggest mistake of his life - before it kills him.
"Remember by Your Scars": Jane Lewis is a white nurse who fled the East coast and abusive relationships. When her latest ends, a new man walks into her life and reopens all the scars she’s tried to hide.
