Paul Two Persons owns a resort lodge nestled within the breathtaking landscape of Northwestern Minnesota, not far from the reservation where he was raised. But this treasured land that Paul fought the Tribal Counsel and U.S. government for years to control is slipping away, and his next bank payment lurks ominously. Paul's desperate strait could have been avoided...if only he hadn't made a sizable loan to his childhood friend Al.
When Al dies of an apparent suicide, Paul's doom seems unavoidable. Haunted by demons from the past, growing increasingly distant from his wife, facing foreclosure on the lodge, he has become a tchibai, a walking shadow. Yet nagging suspicions about Al's suicide penetrate his inertia...and as Paul begins to investigate his death, he is drawn into a web of deceit which calls into question his own identity, and the long history of his people.
