Summary (From the publisher):

Robert Johnson arrives at the Spokane Reservation, having made a deal with the devil. He is sent to see Big Momma, who has helped the likes of Jim Morrison, and Janis Joplin.

Thomas-Builds-the-Fire shows him the way, and is left with the guitar. So with his, almost friends, Victor Joseph and Junior Polatkin (featured in Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven, and the film Smoke Signals) he goes on to form a band: Coyote Springs.

They meet the other two members of their band along the way, and go on to try and make it big, but before long they have to come back home to consult Big Momma and Robert Johnson themselves.
