Ghost Dancer by Judy Merritt

Embark upon a surprising dream journey with Spotted Weasel, the spirit of a Lakota Ghost Dancer as he explores the extraordinary visions of Crazy Horse and Wovoka. Join him at Bear Butte with Hanwi and Maka-akan, the spirits of the moon and the earth. There he experiences an initiation by Wakinyan, the Thunderbird and learns he is one of the dreamers of Crazy Horse's vision. Hanwi then becomes Spotted Weasel's guide. When he falls into trance during the Ghost Dance, he begins dreaming of B.J., a woman riding her horse Phoenix alone across the plains of South Dakota near the end of the Cold War; and of Gracie, an elder woman living alone on the prairie, as she journeys through her dreams to a city of stone temples and ancient ceremonies. Transcend time, space and culture as Spotted Weasel learns how his dreams and the visions of Crazy Horse and Wovoka are interconnected with the great turning of the celestial calendar of the ancient Holy City.
