    Based on the original Eagle Books characters by Georgia Perez.

    In the original Eagle Books stories, Rain and his friends were about six years old. However, in this new story, Coyote and the Turtle’s Dream, they are entering the 7th grade. Once again, the eagle gives a warning to Rain, but this time it is about the disappearance of water on their reservation. Never forgetting the health messages taught to them by the eagle, the kids embark on a mystery/adventure to solve a riddle about ancient fossils that will restore the water’s flow.

    Grandmother Turtle warns Sky Heart and Thistle that the water on the reservation is disappearing because the remains of an ancient turtle ancestor are being stolen. The animals agree that Sky Heart should seek the help of Rain that Dances. That afternoon, Rain and Boomer see their classmate, Jimmy, throw away two strange objects in a trash can. They retrieve the bony­looking objects and Rain takes them home. Later that night, Sky Heart visits Rain in a dream, giving him clues about the vanishing water and pleading with him to “help us.” At school the next day, Rain shows the “bones” to Simon and Hummingbird who agree that they are fossils. Unaware that their school is being watched by a shadowy figure, the four friends gather in the school courtyard where they learn that Jimmy has mysteriously vanished.
