When the "blue coats," United States federal forces, came to move The People from their land, many Navajo lost their lives, and most were driven away on The Long Walk. His tribe decimated, his parents murdered, one boy manages to escape with his shaman grandfather. Their quest: to save their people by finding and reuniting the mythical and powerful coyote beads, which balance the opposing energies of peace and violence, harmony and war.
But the trickster Coyote, who appears in the guise of the brutal Ute Indian Two-Face, is hunting them for the blue coats, and the boy knows that only the powerful magic of the ritual coyote beads can defeat this feared enemy. They must recover the beads!
Now, share the adventure. Discover the stunning and unforgettable journey of a young man in a time of terrible turmoil, who conquers the greatest of evils with love, honor, and the magic of his ancestors.
A Young Spirit book, based on a family story of vast historical and spiritual importance.
". . . real magic comes from grace. . . if a people are one with the land, they will endure with the land forever! This is Gerald Hausman's finest book." —David Kherdian, Newbery Honor award-winning author of The Road from Home
"With The Coyote Bead, Gerald Hausman once again displays the sensitivity and sympathetic understanding toward Native people that has long marked his work. This novel offers an intriguing look into a tragic and—unjustly—little-known episode in American history; younger readers of all races should enjoy it." —William Sanders, author of Journey to Fusang
"More than a poignant tale, more than a story laced with native magic, The Coyote Bead is steeped in the richness of Navajo legends which prove determination and perseverance can bring ultimate triumph to all those who have the courage to believe in themselves." —Mary Summer Rain, author of The Singing Web
"Gerald Hausman brings a poet’s keen vision to this narrative of a Native American tragedy, one that reverberates with so much that was to come in our own time. Hausman knows the Navajo people, the land, and the healing wisdom of their culture as well as any living American writer." —Aram Saroyan, author of Day and Night: Bolinas Poems
"Once again Gerald Hausman has delivered a powerful book for a new generation of readers who deserve to know the whole truth of the past. The tragic yet poignant story of a band of resolute Navajo people as told in The Coyote Bead is as timeless and provocative as the account of the Joads in The Grapes of Wrath. This is an important story of human struggle, resiliency, and hope." —Michael Wallis, author of The Real Wild West
