As white settlers stream west and change Indian life forever, Falling Star, a member of the Nez Perce in Wyoming Territory, faces an uncertain future. Eventually she meets Hugh Cameron, a fur trader, with whom she has two children. One son chooses life among the Indians while the other embraces the new society with its promise of material prosperity. The arrival of a railroad allows the Camerons to stake their claim in a growing countrybut at great cost. Powerless to help them, Falling Star watches her family endure tragedy but emerge triumphant. This is a bittersweet story of a woman with tremendous strength and courage. (September)
