Frank O. Smith's Dream Singer is a unique and wonderful work: at once lyrical and grounded, mystical and gritty. It's the story of a runaway boy and a runaway man who in finding each other also find a way out of their individual fixes, both spiritual and physical. Smith writes with great authority about boys and men, women and girls, boxcars and railroad bulls, hobos and cops, and he creates a vivid here and now that you can see, smell and touch. I was sorry to come to the dramatic ending, much as I enjoyed it. ( )

Dream Singer is the story of Elijah McCloud, a Native American elder who lives reclusively in the mountains of the West. As a young man, he possessed the rare gift of dream singing – the ability to see the future, but lost it through a selfish act. As a result, he became estranged from his family, his Modoc heritage, and from himself. A seemingly chance crossing of paths with a thirteen year-old runaway boy who has witnessed a murder in a rail yard dramatically changes both their destinies. Part love story, tragedy, and mystery, Dream Singer is a story of the betrayal of love, and the quest for redemption, where listening to dreams and the spirit of the land is vital to Elijah and the boy staying ahead of the killer – and staying alive.
