"I breathed as shallowly as possible and I made my way across the colorless land in my too bright red Cavalier. I seemed to be bringing the only real color in the entire desert. A distinct feeling of being watched by invisible eyes came over me. I was a huge, displaced, red ant crawling to her death in some giant kid's toy ant farm. I felt the last thing I expected to feel - embarrassed." At the bedside of their dying father, Cat Hopkins' older sister reveals a long-kept, family secret that demolishes Cat's middle American reality and catapults her into a dark and mysterious world where ancient spirits guard sacred ground, renegade Indians adhere to their own code, and blood stains the Good Red Road onto which she has been thrust. Cat Hopkins is pulled between multiple worlds. There is only one way out of what becomes a nightmare: she must walk directly into the fire and confront her history to solve the puzzle of who she really is. One thing is certain; Cat's journey has just begun.
