The Road to Malheur

A Tale of the American Fur Trade
A novel by

From bestselling and award-winning author C.J. Adrien comes a tale of hardship, friendship, and love on the American Frontier.

In the bustling frontier town of St. Louis, New Yorker Christian dreams of wealth in the fur trade, only to find himself perilously ill-equipped for its harsh realities. A rowdy tavern brawl thrusts him against the formidable trapper, Fergus MacBride. To his shock, the very next day, he discovers MacBride is also his new company leader.

Anticipating riches and adventure as told in New York's newspapers, Christian instead grapples with relentless survival challenges. From evading the persistent pursuit of the Hudson's Bay Company and the fierce Crow tribe to confronting the raw forces of nature, Christian is tested at every juncture.

Amidst these dangers, he finds an unexpected ally – Blue Fox, a young native woman under MacBride's employ as a guide. Drawn together by the trials of the wilderness, a deep bond forms between them. But in a land where alliances shift like desert sands and danger lurks behind every shadow, can a budding romance between two souls from different worlds endure?
