Katsuk, a militant Native American student, has kidnapped 13-year-old David Marshall - the son of the US undersecretary of state. He and his young hostage flee into the deepest wilds of the Pacific Northwest, where they must work together to survive as teams of hunters try to track them. Even as he struggles to escape, David begins to feel a certain amount of respect for his captor. What the boy does not know, however, is that he has been chosen as an innocent from the white world for an ancient sacrifice of vengeance. And Katsuk may be divinely inspired - or simply insane.
This tale of vengeance and sacrifice touches upon many Native American myths even as it reveals various truths in its antihero.

Eclectic, veracious reader hardcover,paperback, ebooks, and audible books. Also have an appreciation for many types of prose.
Looked at the challenges different people have when there culture and religion is not shared by the majority of people. Very philosophical and challenging book.
Yes, but not because of the storyline. The need to continue reading is based on the need to uncover your own opinions and compare and contrast them to the authors.
The soul catcher
The ending was extremely moving and touching.
Frank Herbert is always ahead of his time.
