(2015)
(The second book in the Five Trails West series)
A novel by

 
Silver bullets, bears, blizzards, and buffalo occupy the Harris family as they
settle into their new life on the Middle Fork of the Little Red River. Add Big
Sam Meeker to the mix and things really start to happen, like bear wrestling to
the death, a Cherokee wedding, a battle with thieves at Half Moon Mountain, and
a fight with white renegades over silver bullets. Jerry Harris visits White Wolf
and Morning Starr on Swan Creek and gets a new name from an Osage seer. His
rescue of a captive Kaw slave in a spring blizzard causes a stir in the Osage
camp and earns deadly enemies for Jerry. His fight in the wilderness of the
Ozark hills with two Osage warriors leaves him seriously wounded and the slave
girl Kansas as his only hope for survival. Kansas searches for her family among
the Kaw tribe, then she and Sly Fox capture and tame a herd of wild horses after
surviving a raid by Pawnee warriors. Those young boys Jesse Meeker and Riley
Fourkiller learn the hard way that fishing and wine don't mix well and it is
left up to Grandmother Laughing Brook to save them from a terrible fate.
