Summary
Going home: Barnaby Skye is a "free trapper" in the Rockies. With his devoted Crow wife, Victoria, an eccentric botanist named Alistair Nutmeg, and a stray dog, Skye makes his way west to begin the long journey home to England. Fighting Mexican bandits and Pacific coast Indians along the way, battling thirst and hunger, Skye learns where home really is and what honor really means. / Downriver: At the trapper's rendezvous in Wyoming, in 1838, Barnaby Skye, seaman-deserter from the Royal Navy, is offered an opportunity to become a post trader in his Crow Indian wife's homeland. He begins the journey to St. Louis to present himself as a candidate for the job and undergoes a lesson in survival on a Missouri River steamboat
