The year is 2094, and the Native tribes have built sealed, protected Enclaves to live in. The Enclaves are the only places left on the face of the earth where nature is thriving, where pollution doesn't exist, nor acid rain, nor crimes against the earth and its people. Outside the Enclaves there is only desolation and despair, and people are concentrated in small Complexes where power and money rule. These Complexes are ruled and policed by different factions, mostly the Chinese and Japanese.
The Native tribes can do nothing to prevent the killing of nations and the land. They can only wait until it's safe to use their technology to cleanse the world and rebuild it as it should be. It is this technology that the Complexes want at any cost, including murder. They've placed the blame for the devastation at the feet of the tribes, in order to further hatred and the drive for revenge.
Something has gone wrong with one of the Enclaves in North America. An Indian flyer has been downed and a systems chip, encoded with vital technological secrets, is missing. Gahzee is chosen to leave the Enclave to find the chip before anyone else can use it. He will never be able to return to the Enclave, for it lies behind force fields and is pure. The Outerlands are filled with diseases, and the Enclaves cannot risk contamination. Gahzee will be alone and homeless, giving all he has so that the Enclaves will stay safe and thrive.
The first night out of the Enclave, Gahzee befriends a coyote, Nanabozho, and they become a tribe of two. A beginning. Then Gahzee is captured by a group of Outlanders who intend to cook him and eat him, believing his flesh will make them healthy. Gahzee manages to escape, taking out a number of the enemy. He then learns that the populace believes the state of the world is the 'Claver's' fault, a belief that could not be further from the truth.
Gahzee chances across a battle between messenger Lisa Bone and some of the Complexes' Mafia types, the 'Yaks.' Lisa is running from some serious trouble; already two friends have died in her stead. Gahzee and Lisa are caught up in a power struggle and Gahzee discovers that the 'Yaks' have killed off everyone living in one of the Enclaves with the use of the stolen technology. He's too late. Gahzee claims the Enclave and means to clean up the entire world with the help of Lisa Bone and her friends, and an independent power base, the Jones Co-op.
This is a tale of hope, for mankind, and for the future of the planet. Svaha is Amerindian and means "the time between seeing the lightning and hearing the thunder; a waiting for promises to be fulfilled". Svaha is the new name of the acquired Enclave.
