An Apache holy man, Diyin, one of Geronimo’s band, escapes on the way to incarceration in Florida. A vision foretells a mission in which he is guided by a red-tailed hawk. He is befriended by a young, impoverished couple, Michael and Sally Collins, in northern Georgia. Their life is affected by him as they move to Pennsylvania and experience a better life. It is there that Diyin discovers a holy place where his beliefs help him search the skies for signs of the future from the Great Spirit. Subsequent generations of the Collins family experience the American Dream punctuated by notable appearances of the red-tailed hawk emphasizing their connection to Native Americans.
