Inhaltsangabe: The ghostly heroine narrates her quest for a spiritual home in the alternate reality of Pueblo Indian mythology. She is accompanied by myriad guides and animal spirits who help her attain self-knowledge. They are Old Man Coyote, Grandfather Bear, Sister Snake, and Spider Woman. Cricket and Rattle Sister, companions from her past, lend support during the forty-day journey into an unfamiliar and enchanting place. Finally there is Buffalo, the mighty spirit guide, who patiently instructs her in the ways of this alien world. In a magically transposed landscape of the American Southwest, they all play a pivotal role in bringing the story to its surprising and joyful conclusion.
From her own visionary experiences, noted anthropologist Felicitas Goodman has woven together an adventure story of a special kind?with a ghost as the protagonist. It is a tale of death and dying, yet full of light and joy, a heartwarming celebration of the immortality of the human soul. The story is told by the ghost herself, who is on a quest for a permanent home in the alternate reality of Pueblo-Indian mythology, whose inhabitants include animal spirits such as Old Man Coyote, Grandfather Bear, Sister Snake and Spider Woman.
