As a boy, he was Samson Hunts Alone until a deadly misunderstanding with the law forced him to flee the Crow reservation at age fifteen. Today he is Samuel Hunter, a successful Santa Barbara insurance salesman with a Mercedes, a condo, and a hollow, invented life. Then one day, destiny offers him the dangerous gift of love in the exquisite form of Calliope Kincaid and a curse in the unheralded appearance of an ancient god by the name of Coyote. Coyote, the trickster, has arrived to reawaken the mystical storyteller within Sam...and to seriously screw up his existence in the process.
"Downright laugh-out-loud, can't-put-the-book-down funny."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer
"[A] whimsical fable of contemporary culture shock....Tautly written with a zest for the absurd and the unpredictable."
-- Jennifer Howard, The New York Times Book Review
