Summary
Murder is unthinkable to The People, a Paleolithic tribe migrating across Alaska and becoming some of the first undocumented immigrants to enter the Americas. For them, murder isn't merely tragic, it's forbidden. Murder poisons the entire tribe and puts it at odds with nature, the Spirits, and the mighty Earth Mother. A murderer must be found and removed in order to put the world back in balance. Raven is the aging Spirit Man to a band where a member has been strangled with a garrote. Worse, evidence of witchcraft is linked to the killing, another terrible violation of The People's covenant with the Earth Mother and the Spirits. Raven isn't a Spirit Man because of sacredly held beliefs. He holds the position because his band needed someone to do so, and because he needed to secure his place among them. Now the agnostic Spirit Man begins having dreams in which a stranger holds Raven's skull in his hands
Summary
Serving as a Spirit Man to a Paleolithic tribe migrating across Alaska, the secretly agnostic Raven is tasked by a self-proclaimed goddess with risking his life to identify a murderer whose violent act has unbalanced the tribe's relationship with the spirit world
