(From the publisher):
Kesbe Temiya was making a special delivery flight millions of miles away. A collector of rare aircraft on the planet Oneway had bought a WWII C-47 transport that she'd reconditioned centuries after it was marooned on an iceberg.
After the spaceship dropped her and her cargo on the planet, bad weather forced her down over a plateau far from her destination. Only the help of a mysterious figure riding an alien flying creature enabled her to make an emergency landing.
Her rescuer was a member of a long-vanished Pueblo Indian colony. Following the prophecy of the Blue Star Kachina, the colony had come to Oneway to live in the old ways, away from technology and the white man. Kesbe herself was of Pueblo blood, but here she was an interloper. Only by becoming a member of the People of the Sky could she secure their help in getting the Gooney Berg to its buyer halfway across Oneway. And to do that she must accept a strange and intimate bonding with an alien flyer, in a ritual that threatens to strip away her modern ways...if it doesn't kill her.
