Available in paperback  The Return of Skeleton Man, by Joseph Bruchac (Abenaki). 2006, with black & white illustrations by Sally Wern Comport.

Molly, the young woman warrior who had already once fought and conquered the Skeleton Man, is suffering. It’s not “just” traumatic stress syndrome, it’s the knowledge that the monster is not really dead, and that he’s waiting to strike again. With that knowledge, strengthened by the ancient stories her father has taught her, a hotel housekeeper who is not really what she seems, a spirit Rabbit who still appears in her dreams, and her willingness to cry “help” into the night, she must once again go into battle. The end of the confrontation, in which Molly in her commandeered bulldozer fights Skeleton Man in his all-terrain vehicle, is at once predictable and terrifying. Middle readers will love it.
