On the day after Christmas in 1862, thirty-eight innocent Dakota Sioux Indians were hanged in the largest mass execution in United States history. One hundred and fifty years later, Kyle Ghostkiller has the chance to go back and save them.


 Kyle has just returned to town to accept a medicine bundle he has inherited from his ancestor, a man named Ghostkiller who was unjustly hanged in 1862. The ancient bundle contains tools giving Kyle the power to time travel. Arriving into town just after four teenagers are found brutally murdered, Kyle becomes a prime suspect; especially when the town gossip blames the Ghostkiller family curse while being questioned by the FBI.


With Special Agent Lee Tarkington hot on his trail and a jilted, childhood sweetheart sabotaging his every move, Kyle escapes into the past. Here, he must confront dark forces responsible for the murderous curse, or risk losing the "38" to the hangman's noose. It's a fierce battle between good and evil that Kyle must win. Only the sacred ceremonies of his ancestors and Kyle's sheer determination will save the Indians from the hangman's noose and change history for the Great Sioux Nation.

On December 26, 1862, thirty-eight full-blooded and mixed-blooded Sioux Indians were hanged in Minnesota for various crimes against white settlers after what became known as the Great Sioux Uprising. The Uprising came in retaliation for corrupt and questionable actions on the part of the government concerning treaties that were not honored. The hangings are known as the largest mass execution in United States history. This book is based on that history and is being adapted to film.
