As the People settled into Indian Territory, having survived the forced march, the disease ridden supplies and stolen food, a new and insidious enemy threatened them - an enemy in a jug.
Into this intrigue comes Coyote, half Lakota and half Blackfoot, forced to live on the fringe of society among his mother's people.
And what about Wheezer's new friend, a wild coyote Sasa calls Yellow Eyes?
Who killed Usti Yansa? Healthy little boys shouldn't grow weak and die when they have shelter, food and the care of their families, yet Sasa's little brother, the last of her family, sickens, mumbling the mysterious 'I didn't do it right, I didn't do enough. Why didn't it work?' Now Sasa and her new friend, Wheezer, the Jack Russell Terrier must find out why he died.
