"A wonderful book. Well-researched fur trade setting, cultures in interaction and conflict. The characters are believable and complex individuals...a great love story ... a special understanding of American Indian mysticism." Don Coldsmith

Amazing reverse trip up the river system instead of down. I sort of follow the natural history and anthropology bits and give these sorts of plots a miss. I wasn't sorry i read it though, all in all not a bad read.
