The Western Gods, Caleb Eatough

The Western Gods

A Native-American goddess falls in love with an Irish-Catholic priest as he seeks to evangelize the Arapaho Indians.

In 1864 in Colorado, a missionary seeks to destroy the gods. The ears of corn overhear his plan. He is not all he seems.

A girl watches him warily, as she watches over the foxes and the corn. The Navajo call her a Skinwalker, but she calls her mother White Buffalo Woman.

The great spirits of the land war with each other, claiming souls without regret. When gods and men overturn the balance between justice and mercy, do the gods parley men’s fates?
