Description


The Past--The Cheyenne Dog Soldiers of the old west, or Hoe-tuh met-tuh nay-yoh, were skilled warriors serving as a last line of defense, the embodiment of purity and sacrifice. Many gave their lives protecting the tribe from enemies. In November 1864, one hundred Cheyenne escaped the Colorado Sand Creek massacre and were chased into Montana, disappearing into the snow-capped mountains, never to be seen again. The Present--Intrepid anthropologist Jessica Corbett leads a team of nine diggers into the wilds of Glacier National Park, Montana, searching for signs of the legendary lost-band of Cheyenne, hot on a trail leading her to the heart of evil. Late one night, under the light of a blood moon, she learns one of her crew is a murderous racist who's after an amulet worn round her neck, and will kill to possess it. Glacier Park-Ranger Jared Neeling is a man with no roots, his foster parents dead, his biological parents a mystery. Perched high on a remote cliff overlooking the majestic Ma'heono Falls, he ponders his place in the world, and where next to steer his life's course. After a near-fatal misstep, Jared finds himself inside a dark cavern where a lone shaman shares a vexing tale. The White Devil of Sand Creek has returned, meaning to paint the earth red with Cheyenne blood. Even more shocking is the shaman's claim Jared is the one of legend, the Oe?keso He-tah-ne, the Dogman, a fierce warrior charged with stopping the killer from wiping out the Cheyenne people. In a night filled with terror, Jared and Jessica fight against threats from man and beast as they struggle to save an entire race from extinction!
