Sky Coyote by Kage Baker

This is the second book in the eight book Dr. Zeus series. I've read the first four and am re-reading them before I read the last four. My review on In the Garden of Iden is here.

The first book is mostly about Mendoza, but the protagonist in this book is Joseph, her mentor, who is from the cave-painting days. Dr. Zeus wants to preserve an entire village of Chumash Indians, and after getting all their information, bring them to a base where they'll be servants (good for them, too). Joseph gets to have appliances and play Coyote to the Chumash and talk them into doind what he wants. The Operatives at the Dr. Zeus base are appalled by the Dr. Zeus civilians who are there -- they eat protein powder, play videogames and nothing else, and are terrified of just about everything. How did they get that way? We don't find out in this book, but we do get really excellent Native American characters and Operatives.
