Description: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.
The friends “play detective.” Comparing notes, they determine that the bones are from a cave at Shell Ridge. The boys check out Shell Ridge where they spy two men who could be fossil poachers. Later that day, Rain and Boomer go to the park where they discover Jimmy and his dog, Rocky. Jimmy reveals that a coyote took him to a cave where he found fossils like the two he threw away. He was soon selling them to a stranger named Vernon Smeed at Nelson’s Rock and Smoke Shop. Unwisely, Rain volunteers that his Granma and her brother followed a coyote to that same cave when they were kids. Frightened, Jimmy tells the boys that Smeed will hurt him if he doesn’t show him the cave’s location. The boys promise Jimmy they won’t tell anyone about the threat. Unfortunately, Jimmy is grabbed that night by Nelson’s men. Smeed threatens to feed Rocky to a tank of fish if he doesn’t take him to the cave. Desperate, Jimmy bargains with Smeed, promising to give him the name of someone who knows where the cave is. Will Rain ever be able to forgive him?
