During the 1870s, both life and travel are slow-paced. As Kyle travels lonely dirt roads outside St. Louis, planning to find a beautiful wedding dress for his future bride, Maggie, he decides to rest his weary body at Fort Harding. He sits down to participate in a late-night poker game with a devious sergeant and wins a blue amulet--an object that will change his life forever. After securing the amulet around his neck, Kyle sleeps restlessly and dreams of a wolf attacking a village. The next morning, he rides away toward home, feeling uneasy. As it turns out, Kyle's gut feeling is right. When Kyle is killed an Indian medicine man who takes the amulet, Kyle's brother, Jessie, is propelled into a perilous fight of desperation to find the trinket before his brother's soul vanishes into eternal damnation forever. In this compelling fantasy tale, time is of the essence as one man must rely on his budding psychic powers and the ghosts of his brother and parents to combat an Indian medicine man and his ancient magic--before it is too late.
