(From the publisher):
As a brash youth, Joel Ryan joins the Confederate Army. But when he returns home to Kentucky, he finds himself a stranger there. Setting off in search of a place to start over, his wanderings lead him to the hills of Montana, a dangerous group of men - and a mission that will change him forever...
When Joel first lays eyes on Mourning Dove, he realizes his hide would be better served by walking away. But his conscience doesn't take kindly to abandoning the helpless Cheyenne woman to her brutal captors. He never dreams that rescuing her will bring him the greatest love - and make him an enemy more lethal than any Yankee he faced in the war...
Among the Cheyenne, Joel learns a new way of life, earning the name Silvertip Grizzly Bear. And after he elopes with Mourning Dove, his duties as husband and father bring him unexpected joy - too soon cut short by a madman's bloody wrath. Now, twelve years later, revenge is close at hand...
