This newly released novel (2020) will interest readers who seek works about the shamanic cultures and realms.
The plot: "Five newcomers arrive at the 1998 Settlers' Reunion at the mid-Columbia River: two anthropologists drawn by the storytelling, two on special missions from their elders, and a Siberian shaman intent on river healing.
A Wanapum Indian bus driver angry over salmon losses takes them into the devastated area around the defunct Hanford atomic plant, the scene of the 1943 settler evictions. That view, and the growing threat of nuclear waste from the plant, spark new insights, friendships, and loves."
Decades-old anger is swept into vows of action to save the salmon, the Columbia, and the world beyond.
