From her own visionary experiences, Goodman, an anthropologist, 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 heart-warming 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. During her sojourn in the magically transposed landscape of the American Southwest, she is accompanied by her spirit friend from human days, the Cricket. Her Rattle Sister, also a companion from the time when she was still a human, lends a hand when during her forty days in that unfamiliar world she yearns to rise into yet another mysterious dimension familiar from former days. Buffalo, her mighty Spirit Guide, patiently instructs her in the ways of the alien world that she has entered. We come to know also other famous personages of the Pueblo world of myth, animal spirits, such as Old Man Coyote, Grandfather Bear, Sister Snake and Spider Woman. They all play a role in bringing the story to its surprise conclusion.
