LOST TRIBE by Gene O'Neill
For years the Native American tribes on the Northwest Coast of the US have talked about a mythical white tribe among them. A member of that lost tribe in a different form is released from a long resting place during an earthquake, which traps a number of people in a church in the tiny town of Mendocino. At the same time an escaped prisoner from Pelican Bay is caught and locked up in the church. The released lost tribe member circles the church, looking for other members of her tribe. What happens. An aside: a 10,000 year old skeleton is discovered on the Columbia River between Oregon and Washington. It is initially determined to be Caucasian and has a spear in its hip. October 2020.
