Allen Steele takes us back to Coyote in the first book in a new story arc where an alien ambassador gives a human a gift that will change the course of history - an AI version of the spiritual teachings of "Sa-Tong-ta" the way of life followed by sentient races throughout the galaxy. The recipient of the gift is an unlikely choice, a man with nothing to live for, but what it awakens in him may be what all of humanity needs to rise beyond self-destruction...if they don't wind up killing the messenger first.
