After leaving the Ute Reservation, 16-year-old Jheri Byrdsong discovers that moving to a small town isn’t easy. She embarks on a wilderness experience at Camp Weechquootee with a group of girls, including her best friend, Morgan, and her two worst nemeses, Stacia and Whitney. Jheri is savvy in outdoor knowledge and survival skills. After camp leaders ask her to share her unique knowledge, she becomes the victim of hostile practical jokes. Then one night, Jheri sees Stacia and Whitney sneak out of camp, even though they’re forbidden to leave until an elusive kidnapper is caught. Jheri and Morgan follow them, and Jheri finds herself in a survival situation on sacred Native American ground believed to be protected by the mythical warrior Weechquootee. She must rely on skills she learned from her tribe in order to survive and save Morgan, Stacia, and Whitney. Jheri travels full circle from her belief that old traditions must be discarded to finally understanding the true wisdom of her grandmother’s words: “Like the mighty totem, you can have your feet anchored firmly onto solid ground, and still stand with wings spread to the sky.” The Haunting is based on authentic legend of buried Spanish treasure and the famous Lost Rhoades Mine in the Uinta Mountains.
