Overview

This adult horrorstory is based on northeastern Native American beliefs about such magical creatures as skinwalkers and shapeshifters.
"Yah-ko" is Algonquian for "evil little men,"goblin-like creatures that can shape-shift into animals. A Mohawk shamandescribes them as the spawn of Gan-Nos-Guah, the human flesh eater. The Yah-koare at war with the Nen-Us-Yoks, or "spirit dwarf people," the spawn of Oh-ke,the Earth Mother. Accurate research and a compelling story line make this bookan entertaining, scary read.
