To solve the mystery of dying village Charlie must go deep into the Mountains. Before beginning his journey he goes beneath the over-hanging bows of a great grandfather cedar where he sets his medicine wheel and waits for guidance. In the morning a deathly silence hangs over the valley, no birds are flying; no animals are creeping about. The stink of death hangs over all the land. Then the shuffling feet of the hunters brake the silence as they lead their captives up the trail past Charlie s secret place. Thus begins Charlie s strange adventure wherein he encounters the future world.
Upon his return to the present world he discovers that he has brought back another stone for his medicine wheel Amoz s stone.
