This is the story of a beautiful, gifted woman who leaves the magic mountains of her native New Mexico for New York of the seventies— piratical, opulent, gas-lit New York—only to end her search for happiness back in the high, thin air of Santa Fe. Santa Fe Cameron was named for the place of her birth. Child of a Spanish mother and a Scotch father, she inherited from both a high degree of psychic perceptivity easily visible to the Indian Nata-nay, who gave the little orphan a turquoise amulet as a keepsake. It is this turquoise, Indian symbol of the spirit, which dominates her life and gives the book its title.
