Overview

Contains "The Path to Kuskurza" and "White Indian." These stories serve as stand-alone prequels to the dark fantasy, “Kachina.”

The ancient cliff-dwelling Anasazi Indians who left the safety of their cliff dwellings centuries ago and vanished in history. "The Path to Kuskurza" tells the story of one of the last Anasazi, a young boy named Lutakawi, who chooses to make the dangerous journey back to the Anasazi world of creation far beneath the surface of this world.

However, the remaining Anasazis’ hopes for a peaceful re-integration are destroyed by the oppressive Bow Clan in the world of creation. These warriors serve the Dark Kachinas and Lutakawi finds himself caught up in the war between the Bow Clan and the Sun Clan to try and preserve his people.

In "White Indian," one of the Sun Clan has returned to the surface searching for warriors to aid his enslaved people in the world of creation. He is unprepared for the harshness of surface weather, though, and nearly dies in the desert.

Hank Rider, an small rancher, finds the Sun Clansman near death and tries to nurse him back to health. However, not only must he face townspeople who want to see any Indian dead, he must also fight members of the Bow Clan who have tracked the Sun Clansman to the surface to kill him before he can spread the secret of the world of creation.
