A young NYU assistant professor and sceptic grudgingly takes his girlfriend to see one of Manhattan's many "psychics."He is struck with a severe case of Love-at-First-Sight almost before the beautiful dark-haired woman opens the front door. Not only is this psychic the real thing but Professor Brian Traylor inadvertently travels back in time to seventeenth Century New England. He suffers cold and wet imprisonment; he is tortured during his time in stocks, and all the while waiting for his day of execution and what agonizing form it will take. But these may be the least of his worries when he meets the Wampanoag Indians. From the Wampanoag in the Massachusetts Bay Colony to the Seneca in Upstate New York until he finally finds what he thinks will be a safe home in the Ohio Valley with Tecumseh and the his peaceful Shawnee. Scrying is a thrill-a-minute ride of love, honour, and bravery. The story is a unique perspective of the American Indian experience, looked at from the inside-out.
