During the fur-trapping era of the early 1800's, Marie Dorion refuses to be left behind in St. Louis when her husband heads west. Faced with hostile landscapes, an untried expedition leader, and her volatile husband, Marie finds that the daring act she hoped would bring her family together may, in the end, tear them apart.

History records that on the journey, Marie may have briefly met Sacajawea, the famous interpreter who accompanied Lewis and Clark. She too was married to a mixed-blood man of French Canadian and Native American descent, and was raising a son in a white world. In this imaginative re-telling, the two women forge a friendship that will uphold Marie long after they part, even as she fights for her children's very survival. Her story reminds us that women are bound together in history, now and forever.

    " This book is historical fiction, about an Indian woman who travels west (after Lewis & Clark) with her husband trying to establish a new trade route. It was very good writing, but sometimes hard to keep reading. But, there were some very beautiful life lessons and analogies that really struck me deeply (especially toward the end of the book), which is why I gave it four stars instead of three. I'd be willing to read another book by this author. "
