From the back cover:
"... shapes the ancient Kiowa myth of a boy who turned into a bear into a timeless American classic. The Ancient Child juxtaposes Indian lore and Wild West legend into a hypnotic, often lyrical contemporary novel -- the story of Locke Setman, known as Set, a Native American raised far from the reservation by his adoptie father. Set feels a strange aching in his soul and, returning to tribal lands for the funeral of his grandmother, is drawn irresistibly to the fabled bear-boy. When he meets Grey, a beautiful young medicine woman with a visionary gift, his world is turned upside down. Here is a magical saga of one man's tormented search for his identity -- a quintessentially American novel, and a great one."

This book sounded interesting when I found it at the op shop. My youngest sister is adopted and Native American indian. Will there be any insights in this book?
