Publisher's Summary

Named Writer of the Year in 2003 by Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers, Win Blevins has built a considerable literary legacy with his novels set in America’s heartland of the early 19th century. Here a young man discovers adventure at every turn on the American frontier. Ambitious Sam Morgan leaps at the opportunity to escape his staid life in rural 1820s Pennsylvania. Setting off to make his fortune, he finds work on a riverboat helmed by a wily, cantankerous captain and crewed by a menagerie of eccentric ne’redo-wells. Amidst this group, Sam witnesses the dangers facing frontier traders, falls in love, becomes embroiled in civil conflicts, and finally learns his place in the world on a harrowing journey, alone, through America’s western wilderness. Drawing upon his extensive knowledge of early pioneer life, Blevins has created a classic hero bursting with youthful energy. Narrator Ed Sala lends additional immediacy to Sam’s mesmerizing odyssey.
