Running Red River is a story about what might have happened if the founding of America by Columbus had turned out differently. What if the original inhabitants had been visited before by ancient astronauts?
Running Red River is barely a man. The son of the leader of the Run'oonin. On a warm, sunny day he watches as ships sail in from the ocean and land upon the shore of his land.
This is not a good omen. It was foretold by sky visitors centuries before, and what it foretold was of violence and pestilence to come. Running Red River's father - Bear Walking Sun - is the leader of the Run'oonin and believes that peace is possible with these Ghost Men.
But is it? Will the prophecies turn out to be correct or will the centuries have tempered men's ambitions and anger towards peace and reconciliation?
