Night and Day at Coyote's Paw
This is a story in progress. Complete text will be posted here when the story has been completed.
Synopsis: During a drama of cultural transition, Doty and Coyote visit the Klamath River village where Doty's ancestors lived. During their day and night in the village, a couple of decades fly by. The Modoc War is raging. The Ghost Dance is in full swing. The old village is covered with dust from wagons rolling along the new wagon road. There's word that an eccentric anthropologist in a makeshift 1920s Auto Blanche is driving their way. And Coyote just wants to go fishing!
