Series: Skye's West
(From the publisher):
With the demand for beaver furs dying out, Barnaby Skye - seaman-deserter, Rocky Mountain trapper, and frontiersman extraordinaire - begins a 2,000 mile voyage on the Missouri Riverboat The Otter
. Accompanying him is his Crow Indian wife, Many Quill Woman, whom Skye simply calls, "Victoria."
They have undertaken this journey to secure a position for Skye as a post trader in Victoria's homeland, but the dangers of the river and the menacing Creole fur brigade leader, Alexandre Bonfils, make the voyage more into a test of their survival skills than a relaxing riverboat outing.
