A troubled Lenape Indian asks the Great Spirit for a vision. In Talking Coyote’s vision, a giant who calls himself, the Keeper-of-the-animals, visits him. The Keeper tells him all the animals have been saved from mankind in the Old World the Native Americans left behind millennia ago, The Old World, man left behind to come to this world to live with their brothers and sisters the animals, birds, and fish. The Keeper tells Talking Coyote that the Native peoples must come back to the Old World to help maintain balance.
“Grandfather’s Song” is the story of the Jefferson and Cornplanter families and Talking Coyote’s attempt to find his way to the Old World. Flashbacks to Lenape legends and ancient stories told around campfires tell him the path to take. Along the way, he meets other Keepers and people who will help him with his vision. His success in bringing the Native people to the Old World broke up families and tribes along religious lines. Those Native Americans and other ancient peoples who have converted to a religion other than that of their ancestors are left behind when Talking Coyote leads the people to the Old World.
The Native peoples return to the Old World to live in the old ways the Great Spirit had taught their ancestors, to live and hunt among the animals, and to live a life of balance and harmony with nature. The indigenous people of the world find themselves free to live as their ancestors had once lived, governed only by their religion and their tribal members.
Led by Talking Coyote’s prophetic vision, those who honored nature and all the animals the Great Spirit created have been taken from a dying earth and into a new life. Now, they must live very differently––hunt and preserve their food, make tools of stone and hide––in short, adapt to a life without the most basic convinces.
For all the things taken from them, there are miraculous things that give. Crying Woman, barren in her old life, now finds herself with child. Elk Caller falls in love with a beautiful woman, only find she is in truth an elk. Dogmen and women and other animals may take off their outer coats and become human.
But this world holds an invisible danger. Lowanachen whispers in the ears of the unwary, seducing them into madness and murder. His evil turns tribe against tribe, brother against brother. And if this evil has its way, no one will survive its bloodlust.
