In 1800s Sonora, Mexico, the Yaquis are in constant struggle to keep their homelands from first the Spaniards and later the Mexicans. The battle between Yaquis and the Mexicans is personal for the Falcon family of Mateo, Petra, Luz, Angel and Cheve, as they fight to survive in the dangerous and violent world they live in. Deer Dancer blends both the mystical culture of the indigenous peoples of the Americas and historical events from this dark period in Mexico's history to fascinate and educate older young adults and adults alike.
