Abstract:

"Love begins upriver, at Katamiin, the Karuk center of the world. Here creation was danced into existence; here "the might of a bulldozer does not equal the will of ten thousand years."" "Shaunna Oteka McCovey is a river guide to these places, a cartographer of that which is created, lost, and regained. The old ways are at war-with alcoholism, heroin, and poverty-using ancient weapons, maidenhair, mussel shells, and beargrass. The heroes are the Brush Dance Boy, Wovoka, and the Smokehouse Boys, who are made of: 1 part smoke, 2 parts shadow, 1 part whispering wind, 2 parts sharpshooter, 1/2 singers of old Deerskin Dance songs." "Anchored in the mountains and forests of northwestern California, yet at the same time transcending boundaries, The Smokehouse Boys is timeless poetry from a timeless people. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET.
