KIRKUS REVIEW

There's something in the air again--Indian spirits (not grain alcohol) to be exorcised called ""chindes"" or how about the ""Mai-Tso"" (not Mao-Tse) that howls before someone dies. Eulalia, daughter of a New England parson, goes to the southwest where she marries widowed Rafael de Casta whose Indian wife Cats ran away--or did she die? After bearing a child, Carmen, who is now infested and sure someone is trying to kill her whereas actually Cata is dangerously around. . . . Mild, really, but all right--and if something is to be really reified, think of it as a Navajo scatter rug for a hogan.
