Description
Lionel barely remembers the old days, before he and his sister, Beatrice, came to the boarding school on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. His life is peaceful, as long as he follows the rules. So he can't understand why Beatrice won't: why she refuses to cut her hair and insists on honoring the Blackfeet traditions. When the appearance of a frozen corpse triggers an irreversible chain of events, the siblings find themselves on a stolen horse fleeing for their lives. Somewhere in the mountains lies their grandfather's homestead--if only they can survive long enough to find him... Suspenseful and beautifully-written, this novel takes readers on an unforgettable journey through the wilderness of Montana in the early 1900s.
