We are introduced to Boone Caudill, who travels the Missouri River from St. Louis to the Rockies, leaving his abusive father to find a life of freedom in the wild. Along the way he gains the friendship of Jim Deakins and Dick Summers, men who share his dream of a life of trapping and exploring. Caudill also wins the love of a beautiful Blackfoot princess, a woman willing to love him despite his wild ways. Their lives become forever entwined through adventure, travel, and eventually betrayal. Caudill finds that freedom comes at a price—one higher than he ever could have imagined.
