Everything you need to understand or teach Where Desert Spirits Crowd the Night by Charles de Lint.
This story offers a lighthearted tale of a woman's entanglement with the mischievous Coyote and her following of the flute music of the mysterious Kokopelli. "Where Desert Spirits Crowd the Night," reprinted in The Ivory and the Horn, is an adventure in Navaho mysticism, in which the archetypal figures such as Coyote come to life. Not well versed in Navaho culture, Sophie is understandably confused. Sophie is an ideal companion for an adventure in a realm of dreams and Native American mysticism; she does not panic, and she retains a humorous sense of proportion while untangling herself from the music of Kokopelli and the pranks of Coyote.
