As teenagers, they had not only discovered a treasure of gold on a Navajo reservation, but a lost civilization that mixed Christian and Navajo beliefs in terrible ways.
Now, Lowery's obsession to recover the forgotten treasure forces the men to revisit a terrible series of events that will connect them forever. If they don't find the treasure, a curse that has remained dormant for many years is certain to be unleashed.
Explore friendship, Native American culture, and the nature of evil in The Ancients.
