A novel about a half-Indian boy, Jamie. He "lives in an average American suburb, lives his mother, idolizes his father, and is appealing and normal in every way. Except that he refuses to talk. The only person to whom he will speak is Mr. Bow, an invisible companion. Mr. Bow is not quite a mystic, but he has qualities of a sachem or a guru, and a touch of prophetic foresight to help out in tight spots." "Fascinating as a story… is also important for its insights into the psychology of children leading a borderline imaginary life, meaningful to them, but often difficult for adults."

"Bruce Jewell is a psychologist who… recently moved from California to Zurich, Switzerland, to study at the Carl G. Jung Institute. He has had experience as a child therapist, and he and his wife have personal acquaintance with a number of medicine men of various American Indian tribes… [and] has lived with the Cherokees on the Oklahoma reservation."
