This adult horror story is based on northeastern Native American beliefs about such magical creatures as skinwalkers and shapeshifters.“Yah-ko” is Algonquian for “evil little men,” goblin-like creatures that can shape-shift into animals. A Mohawk shaman describes them as the spawn of Gan-Nos-Guah, the human flesh eater. The Yah-ko are at war with the Nen-Us-Yoks, or “spirit dwarf people,” the spawn of Oh-ke, the Earth Mother. Accurate research and a compelling story line make this book an entertaining, scary read.Jamie Sutliff has turned a number of his stories into award-winning screenplays, including The Devil Wind, which won a Laurel Leaf for best screenplay at Hollywood’s Independent Film Festival; Yah-Ko, which won the Silver Award at the International Independent Film Awards; and Antidote Man, a semifinalist at the Hollywood Circus Road Film Festival.
