White Wing, the future spiritual leader of a diminishing Pueblo tribe, is one of the best ritual dancers. He dances with such dignity and skill that he transcends this world like a sacred eagle, filled with grace and light. Lured by the excesses of modern society he uses his power of dancing for monetary gain rather than to fulfill the spiritual needs of his tribe.
Winn Conover, who first appeared in the novel Naked Into the Night, and now called “Anglo” by his adopted tribe, is called upon by the tribe’s elders to rescue White Wing from Las Vegas. Fulfilling ancient Native prophecy that white people will join forces with and help save Native spirituality, Anglo enters the hedonistic world to retrieve and guide, a lost and sacred son. Ultimately Lost In Las Vegas is a shared vision quest that reveals the path home, not only for White Wing and Anglo, but for all of us.
