SHAMAN: A Journey to Infinity is the saga of a shaman and his descendents, each of whom faces personal, and sometimes overwhelming, moral dilemmas in times of extreme danger and difficulty that demand immediate action. After their ancient valley is destroyed by the wrath of Mother Nature, Screaming Eagle, an aging shaman and medicine man, leads the tiny, surviving remnant of a once powerful nation to a new home. Along the path revealed to him by Tuchimechan, the Great Spirit, Screaming Eagle and his family fight not only to prevent rebellion from within the tribe, but also to avoid further tragedy and obstacles that threaten to send them all to the Sleep Which Ends All Summers. SHAMAN: A Journey to Infinity explores relationships between young and old, cultural and historical traditions and the role of spirituality in the triumphs and failures of multiple generations of shaman, as each one grapples with his own mortality. There is a specific consequence for every decision made in life, regardless of age, and recognition of that truth is something which Screaming Eagle, as well as each shaman who follows him throughout eternity, struggles to teach those whom he is destined to lead. It is a hard lesson which the tribe must be taught repeatedly, but one which must be learned in order to survive.
