A NovelBook - 2012
"Mariano Medina, former mountain man and friend to the likes of Kit Carson, has changed with the times and made a place for himself as a successful businessman with a trading post on the big Thompson River. With his Indian wife, Takansy, and his children, he strives for the same recognition and respect from his neighbors that he'd earned among the mountian men. But the influx of new settlers instead brings bigotry and resentment. As his business interests expand, Medina pins his hopes on his daughter Lena, an accomplished horsewoman whom he's determined to turn into a "lady" as part of his desire for acceptance and admiration along the Big Thompson. His wife has other ideas. She wants Lena to pursue her skills with horses, her "spirit path.""--Back cover.
