      Don Thundercloud watched the beautiful lady step out of the Cadillac and come into his woodworking shop in southwest Arizona, near the Mexican border. She introduced herself as an Archaeologist and wanted Don to make an authentic Mayan music box for her husband. She would furnish the exotic wood and the movement. Don reluctantly accepted the job after she agreed to furnish the material and pay him fifteen hundred dollars. She has treated the wood with a poisonous frog venom that causes severe hallucinations. She is sure Don is a Shaman and she hopes the hallucinations will reveal a date when a Mayan temple will open and expose an ancient Mayan stela, which is considered priceless. Her husband leaves for Mexico to regain his share of stolen Mayan artifacts, taken in a museum robbery in Mexico City. Don and Stella travel to Mexico and the Yucatan in search of her husband and encounter museum robbers, Mexican bandits, and Mayan Indians, all in the quest of the Mayan stela. Don learns he is a Shaman and uses his magical powers to capture the bandits and returns the stolen artifacts to Mexico.
