Elijah McCloud and Jackie Logan are different in every way imaginable—except one: both are deeply wounded by loss. Elijah once possessed the rare gift of dream singing—seeing the future through dreams—but lost it through a selfish act. It caused him to become estranged from his family, his Modoc tribal heritage, and himself. He now lives a reclusive life in the mountains. Jackie, a young runaway from Seattle, stumbles upon a murder in a rail yard—and flees the killer. A seemingly chance crossing of paths changes both Elijah’s and Jackie’s fates. The grandeur of the West and Native people’s ancient ties to the land are central in this story about the betrayal of love and the quest for redemption. Listening keenly to rekindled dreams and the natural world becomes a matter of life and death—and ultimately, hope.
