  • "On the verge of committing an act of violence, a troubled, orphaned Indian teenager finds himself hurtled through time and into various bodies, before returning to himself, forever altered by his experience."
  • "A Seattle, Spots, orphelin indien de 15 ans, passé de foyer en orphelinat, finit par vivre dans la rue. Se liant à un Blanc de son âge, il se lance dans un hold-up qui tourne mal. Au moment de mourir, le garçon est projeté dans le temps et l'espace, de Little Big Horn au 11 septembre, pour un long voyage politiquement incorrect dans les périodes troubles de l'histoire des Etats-Unis."
  • "Half-Indian, half-Irish, acne-beset Zits is 15: he never knew his alcoholic father; his mother died when he was six; his aunt kicked him out when he was ten. Running away from his 20th foster home, Zits ends up, briefly, in jail; soon after, he enters a bank, shoots several people and is shot dead himself. Zits then commences time-traveling via the bodies of others, finding himself variously lodged in an FBI agent in the '70s (helping to assassinate radical Indian activists); a mute Indian boy at the Battle of Little Big Horn; an Indian tracker named Gus; an airplane pilot instructor (one of whose pupils commits a terrorist act); and his own father. Zits eventually comes back to himself and to an unexpected redemption."
  • "Flight is the hilarious and tragic story of an orphaned Native American boy who travels back and forth through time in a charged search for his true identity. The journey begins as he's about to commit a massive act of violence. At the moment of decision, he finds himself shot back through time to resurface in the body of an FBI agent during the civil rights era. It's only the first stop. He continues traveling back to inhabit the body of an Indian child during the battle at Little Bighorn and then ride with an Indian tracker in the 1800s before materializing as an airline pilot jetting through the skies today. During these furious travels through time, his refrain grows: "Who's to judge?" and "I don't understand humans." When finally the young warrior comes back to his own life, he is transformed by all he has seen."
