Katsuk, a militant Native American student, has kidnapped thirteen-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.

"In the heart of the wilderness, two memorable characters grow and change, thanks to versatile narrator Scott Brick. Katsuk is a militant Native American grad student who kidnaps David Marshall, the 13-year-old son of a U.S. undersecretary of state. Both evolve in this discomforting production of HerbertÕs 1972 book. As thoughtfully portrayed by Brick, Katsuk begins as a rational disciple of his people's spirits who deteriorates while on a mission of revenge, while David starts as a frightened boy who becomes a capable young man. Brick also ably supplies the cameo voices that round out this paranormal character study. This production is often jarring and difficult to listen to because of its horrifying content, but in the end it provides a satisfying, if heartbreaking, conclusion to two men's journeys.
