Annotation In 1812, as the fledgling United States is drawn into war, the fate of the far west hinges on Manuel Lisa and his trading expedition up the Missouri River. An intimate of the Burr conspiracy, the condemned John Tylor, signs on as boatman. But lurking in Tylor's shadow is half-mad Fenway McKeever. Paid to kill Tylor, he plans to destroy Lisa's expedition and sell his services to the highest bidder. Sequel to Flight of the Hawk:The River (LT 37651).
John Tylor has a free shot into the wilderness where no one will ever know his name or his shame. As he and Will Cunningham head west into the northern Plains, Tylor rescues a wounded hawk, of which he had dreams foretelling the event, and then they run smack into a party of Arapaho. Fortunately, guided by visions, Gray Bear and his desperate little band of Shoshoni, arrive in the nick of time to drive off the Arapaho. Now, Tylor and company are desperate to make the return to Shoshoni country and the safety of the mountains. Sometimes the simplest of dreams are the hardest to fulfill.
