Deer Dancer i s an action-adventure novel set in Sonora, Mexico in the 1800s when Yaquis fought to keep their homelands from first the Spaniards and later the Mexicans. This struggle is dramatized on the larger scale in the fight between Yaquis and the Mexicans and on the smaller level within the Falcon family, Mateo, Petra, Luz, Angel and Cheve. The book draws on mystical-realism and is directed to a young adult audience. However, adults of all ages will find a wealth of historical and cultural lessons about Yaquis and Mexico of the 1800s.
