There is a season for all things...For Barnaby Skye, legendary guide and man of the borders, it is time to start a new life. For Skye's young wife, the beautiful Shoshone woman he calls Mary, it is a time to find the beloved son she has not seen in seven years. For Skye's half-blood son, North Star, it is time to discover who he is. And for Skye's older Crow wife, Victoria, the whole world is spinning out of control. In this sweeping novel of the early West, Skye and his wives and son cope with radical change as the wilderness vanishes, the buffalo are slaughtered, and the government puts the tribes on reservation lands. How can people born and bred to tribal life learn to love another way?
