From the jacket- "From the lore of history, the author has woven a story about buried cities of America when strange animals and birds inhabited the forests and rivers of this world- rivers which have been found lying beneath the gold deposits of the Sierras and the volcanic formation of Calaveras County, California- so named because it means skulls."
