Just a few days after she gave birth alone in the northwoods, a recently widowed young Chippewa woman stumbled into a nearby lumber camp in search of refuge from the winter snows. Come summer, it is clear that Moon Song cannot stay among the rough-and-tumble world of white lumbermen, and so the camp owner sends Skypilot, his most trusted friend, to accompany her on the long and treacherous journey back to her people.
But when tragedy strikes off the shore of Lake Superior, Moon Song and Skypilot must depend on each other for survival. With every step they take into the forbidding woods, they are drawn closer together, until it seems the unanswerable questions must be asked. Can she leave her culture to enter his? Can he leave his world to enter hers? Or will they simply walk away from a love that seems too complicated to last?
Get swept into a wild realm where beauty masks danger and only the truly courageous survive in a story that will grip your heart and your imagination.
This book picks up where the Measure of Katie Calloway leaves off, so it is a bit helpful to read that book first, but if you don't, you'll be fine!
As you read this book, you'll realize how much research must have been done, you'll read of the early treatment of the Indians, and how Christianity affected them. You'll read of the dangers of steamboat traveling and when disaster strikes, you'll follow along on a journey of survival.
A love story with a deeper meaning and a lot of history, a wonderful read!
