• In Footsteps in the Sky, SandGreyGirl is a descendant of pueblo peoples like the Hopi and Zuni. Her grandparents made the one-way trip to the Fifth World, hoping to return to their way of life and the Kachina spirits that nurtured them. Sand has her doubts, but she longs to believe that the real Kachinas live beyond the stars, and made this world ready for her people. Someone has been seeding planets; nine habitable worlds have been found spanning the galaxies. But no other sign of the aliens was discovered—until now. They’ve returned to the Fifth World, and they do not like what they find.
Greg Keyes was introduced at an early age to the cultures and stories of the Native Southwest when his father took a job on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona. In Footsteps in the Sky, his ability to mix “cultures, religions, institutions and languages with rare skill” (Publishers Weekly on The Briar King) is on full display.
