A spirit. A mask. A cult. A way of life and death.
Accompanying her anthropologist husband on a trip to study the Knochine, an isolated tribe in the territory of New Mexico in 1880, Elizabeth Stephenson's life is changing into the substance of dreams. The dreams seem real — too real — more insistent with the passing of each night.
Terrified, she awakes. They're only dreams.
