What would you do for the boy you loved? What if to save him you had to abandon him forever?
Fourteen-year-old Joshua Ishkoday faces an impossible decision as a terrifying dream sets him upon a thrilling and treacherous journey of self-exploration through the dangerous vastness of the Wisconsin northwoods. There, along with his best friends, Mokwa and Little Deer, Joshua summons the power to confront his greatest fears. To do so, all he has to do is trust in his dreams. Unfortunately, Joshua discovers that his dreams have been deceiving him thanks to the intrusion of strange creatures. For out in the middle of the forest dwell the enigmatic Memegwesi, bizarre manitous who have a special plan for Joshua. Joshua soon realizes that he has three monsters to battle: the extraordinary creatures haunting his dreams, the dangerous torrential storm brewing in the northwoods, and finally, the greatest demon of all—his homophobic mother.
“So, are you going to get my son out of this village of yours?” Catherine yelled. She practically spat as she said the word village.
“I don’t think you understand the situation exactly,” Gentle Eagle said.
“What do you mean?” Pastor Martin asked, concerned by Gentle Eagle’s comment.
“They are not at this village anymore.”
“You mean they ran away?” Pastor Martin asked.
“Wait, I’m confused,” Black Crow jumped in. “I thought Joshua had already run away.”
“Yes, but this time deep into the Northwoods. And it’s going to be getting very cold out.”
“Gentle Eagle, where are they going?” Pastor Martin asked, concerned.
“To find my son.”
Catherine’s irritation finally boiled over. She was obviously tired of listening to what she saw as a mystical nut. “Oh, I don’t believe this. My husband has been gone since the beginning of the summer. He’s probably back home in Eagle River, completely drunk by now.”
“No, he is here. Somewhere,” Gentle Eagle insisted.
Pastor Martin sympathized with Catherine, but he knew Gentle Eagle too well to dismiss him casually. “How do you know he’s here?”
“From Joshua’s dreams,” Gentle Eagle said, finally deciding to let the truth out. “Your son is a dreamer, Catherine, just like his father.”
“I’m not interested in your heresy! This is exactly why we left the reservation. And I see nothing has changed!”
Gentle Eagle looked Catherine in the eyes, capturing her full attention. “You claim to follow God, yet you deny the miracle that is your own son. He is very special. The manitous talk to him.”
“There are no such things!” Catherine screamed.
“I have seen what he is capable of. And he’s even more powerful than his father.”
“Are you just going to let them run away into the forest?” Catherine shouted, changing the subject back to something she understood.
