Mysterious beings in the desert , people in the area ignorant of basic human history/customs , stalkers , and a break in of the hotel room he is in . Read this tale that includes alternate realities , missing Native American tribes , giant lizards , sasquatch , gunfights , martial arts , and a confused sheriff .
