Summary (From the publisher):

Set in the second half of the nineteenth century, this is a sweeping tale of interwoven lives, at the centre of which is a search for a missing brother and an unusual and moving love story. Two Englishman find themselves on a journey across the treacherous and unknown landscape of the American and Canadian West in an attempt to trace their brother's path. With them is their half-Blackfoot, half-Scottish guide. Later their party grows to include a Civil War veteran searching for salvation, a young woman determined to avenge her sister's brutal murder, a sycophantic journalist, and a God-fearing saloon keeper. This unlikeley posse becomes entangled in an unfolding drama that forces each person to come to terms with his own demons. Rich with haunting scenes - a bear hunt at dawn, the meeting of a Metis caravan, the discovery of an Indian village decimated by smallpox, a man's visit to the pleasure houses of Victorian London, a young boy's last memory of his mother - and filled with unforgetable characters, The Last Crossing is an epic novel of power, event, and redemption
