And soon, there arises another figure, a man who calls himself the "Red Prophet," who calls for peace and separation, and who teaches the Red Men to restore their connection to the land.But something else is happening on the frontier, as a young boy named Alvin Miller finds himself endowed with the powers of a "Maker," with the ability to change the world around him as he sees fit. And in an encounter with the Red Prophet, Alvin must learn to use his powers either to further the cause of his enemy, the Unmaker, or to create good things for the benefit of others.
