Within its impressionistic framework exists a universe of people of different racial and ethnic backgrounds--American Indians, whites, blacks, Japanese, Koreans--all affected by the desecration of social order and the environment symbolized by the first atomic bomb. The novel takes place against a constantly changing canvas of time and place.

It begins in and around a small Southwestern town in the 1940s, when an Indian tribe is thrown off sacred tribal land because of a secret government project. Later the scene shifts to the war zone in the Pacific and to the city of Hiroshima, and then many years later to a surrealistic cancer ward and a stunning, apocalyptic finale.The book is an eloquent passion play, powerful as only a deeply felt work of art can be, about a torment that transcends people.

place, and time, threatening the devastation of family, culture, even the world itself, with only the barest hint of redemption. At the same time, it is a battle cry for all those committed to resist that destruction.
