With this mystical encounter, twelve-year-old Ryan Tyler is sent on an impossible quest to return a rare artifact, part of a plain’s courting flute, to the wilderness of the Cheyenne boy’s youth. Ryan experiences Cheyenne rituals and faces trials that make him question his quest into the rugged, untamed, and unforgiving Wyoming mountains.
