Lost In Las Vegas (Booker Series Book 2) Kindle Edition
Winn Conover, who first appeared in the novel Naked Into the Night, and now called “Anglo” by his adopted tribe, is called upon by the tribe’s elders to rescue White Wing from Las Vegas. Fulfilling ancient Native prophecy that white people will join forces with and help save Native spirituality, Anglo enters the hedonistic world to retrieve and guide, a lost and sacred son. Ultimately Lost In Las Vegas is a shared vision quest that reveals the path home, not only for White Wing and Anglo, but for all of us.

Coupled with a believable story and mastery in telling it, Lost in Las Vegas is an excellent example of the now-resurgent Visionary Fiction genre as delivered by one of its early pioneers. And a very good read.
I discovered LOST IN LAS VEGAS after stumbling across the initial work, NAKED INTO THE NIGHT, in my local college library. I was quite impressed, all the more so because I discovered half way through reading it that the author lived in my relatively obscure mountain town! I found him in the phone directory, gave him a call, and after a half-hour conversation, immediately went out and bought the other two books. I was not disappointed!
LOST IN LAS VEGAS takes Anglo, who has by now earned a place of controversial respect among elders of his adopted Pueblo tribe, on the onerous task of retrieving a lost young Indian leader who is squandering his special dancing talents in the irreverent casinos of Nevada's gambling capitol. With characteristic sangfroid and guileless generosity, Anglo eventually wins the trust of the cynical dancer and even the high class prostitutes who control him. Anglo assists Dancer on an extraordinary vision quest in the desert outside Las Vegas, which realigns the young man with his Native roots. While the outcome is predictable, the journey is uplifting and often spellbinding. This is my favorite of the three works published so far.
All the books in Monty Joynes' series belong in the category of what might be called spiritual or allegorical fiction. Although the stories are obviously imaginary, they evoke perennial truths and awaken an intuitive sense of the sublime. I am really surprised these works have not received greater popular acclaim. I found them much better written, more profound and believably realistic than such recent bestsellers as CELESTINE PROPHESY and CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD. Perhaps they'll be the sleepers of the year.
