(From the publisher):
Life on the frontier can often be brutal. So when Artemis Borke opens a new trading post in Nate King’s territory, everyone is delighted, including Touch the Clouds, tribal leader of the neighboring Shoshones. Soon, however, things start to go wrong. Borke isn’t just selling trade goods, he is also selling liquor, which has severe consequences for the Shoshone warriors and their families. Even worse, Borke starts selling rifles to the enemies of Touch the Clouds’s people. The once-peaceful Shoshone village, torn apart by Borke’s firewater, will be an easy target for the bloodthirsty Crows. Will Touch the Clouds, Nate King and his son be able to stop the bloodshed before it’s too late?
