The Fallen People of the Black Land

Sent as punishment to spend the night with his ancestors, Kayana, an adolescent Amerindian boy, is caught between the world of conscience and the world of survival. Will conscience override his basic survival instincts—to find food and abate the anger of his gods with an offering?
