Summary
In 1847, Deputy Page Murdock is sent into Montana's Bitterroot Mountains. He quickly finds himself diverted from his original assignment to hunt down Bear Anderson. Although Bear's one-man campaign of vengeance against the Flathead Indians has been silently applauded, President Grant now hopes to prevent a war which the Flatheads promise will come if Bear is not stopped. The strong characters driving the story include Native Americans, African Americans, and a smattering of white settlers. Only Murdock seems to rise above prejudice and focuses on serving justice. He is a hero in a bleak time, a stark place, and under impossible circumstances. Estleman's writing brings not only her characters to life, but also brings to life the landscape and historical pressures through which they travel. -- (Description by: Karen D. Toonen)
