Part: 14

Summary (From the publisher):

Barnaby Skye, the most durable and unforgettable character in modern Western fiction, returns in this harrowing tale of survival from his early years in the Rockies.

In the midst of a brutal winter, Skye's beloved Crow Indian wife, Victoria, is critically wounded when a Blackfoot raiding party attacks a Crow hunting camp. Despite Skye's attempts at doctoring, Victoria's life hangs in the balance as the two, left alone in the frozen wilderness, struggle to survive cold and starvation.

Miraculously, an old mare and her foal wander into their camp. Victoria believes that they have been sent by her spirit guide and finds the strength to ride. Skye and his wife make their way toward Victoria's home village on the Musselshell River. Breaking winter trail is a slow and laborious process, but at the end of the journey, they will find peace. Or will they?

Skye's love of whiskey puts his life, and Victoria's, in peril when they encounter a renegade band of Yankee traders taking a wagon-load of cheap and poisonous raw alcohol to trade among the Indians. Their leader, a former West Point officer, forces Skye to lead them, but all the while the legendary mountain man plots to ruin their deadly enterprise.
