This book is part of Jean Hager's Chief Bushyhead series. She is not as well known as Tony Hillerman, but does the same for the Cherokee culture of Oklahoma as Hillerman does for the Navajos in the Four Corners area; her writing and story telling is on par with Hillerman.

In this one, we start with Henderson Sixkiller as he escapes from jail in order to save his sister from her horrible marriage with a wife-beater. Meanwhile, Chief Bushyhead and others have been trying to find who is stealthily stealing very expensive horse tackle throughout Cherokee County. This is tied to together with one murder and a mysterious light in the woods of which some believe to be the return of the "fire carrier." The story unfolds around us, with one fun night at a stomp party, as we follow Chief Bushyhead about his business and personal life.
