Katsuk, a militant Native American student, has kidnapped 13-year-old David Marshall - the son of the US undersecretary of state. He and his young hostage flee into the deepest wilds of the Pacific Northwest, where they must work together to survive as teams of hunters try to track them. Even as he struggles to escape, David begins to feel a certain amount of respect for his captor. What the boy does not know, however, is that he has been chosen as an innocent from the white world for an ancient sacrifice of vengeance. And Katsuk may be divinely inspired - or simply insane.
This tale of vengeance and sacrifice touches upon many Native American myths even as it reveals various truths in its antihero.

This book is a bit dated much like many of Stephen King's works and I feel like of all the many native north american cultures this didn't accurately portray any of them. I get the narrative I really do, I just know that the native americans culture was, and is, quite peaceful and the characters all approach situations in a very white (reactive) way.

Read the book years ago and enjoyed it then. Scott Brick brings it to life superbly in the audio version. I could not stop listening. Never realized it before, but the end of the book seems to have a bit of a Stockholm syndrome to it. Probably because I didn’t know what Stockholm syndrome was when I read the book years ago.
