His name was Avel, and he lived in two worlds. One was that of his fathers, wedding him to the rhythm of the seasons, the harsh beauty of the land, the ecstasy of the drug called peyote. The other was the world of the twentieth century, goading him into a compulsive sycle of sexual exploits, dissipation, and disgust.
He was a young American Indian, come home from a foreign war. He was a man being torn apart...a man descending into hell...
