Summary
  • The high rocks: "U.S. Deputy Page Murdock rides into the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana in the dead of winter to bring in Bear Anderson, known as "Mountain That Walks" to the local Indians. Murdock, having grown up with Anderson, figures he owes it to the man to try to bring him in alive and give him a chance at a fair trial. But Murdock may have all he can handle in getting himself back down alive" --
  • Stamping ground: "Deputy U.S. Marshall Page Murdock isn't happy when Judge Blackthorne decides to send him on an assignment to north Dakota, a land of sudden blizzards and spring floods. And to make matters worse he has been handed the nearly impossible job of apprehending the renegade Cheyenne leader Ghost Shirt, who is responsible for several massacres in the area" --

Summary
In 1847, Deputy Page Murdock is sent into Montana's Bitterroot Mountains. He quickly finds himself diverted from his original assignment to hunt down Bear Anderson. Although Bear's one-man campaign of vengeance against the Flathead Indians has been silently applauded, President Grant now hopes to prevent a war which the Flatheads promise will come if Bear is not stopped. The strong characters driving the story include Native Americans, African Americans, and a smattering of white settlers. Only Murdock seems to rise above prejudice and focuses on serving justice. He is a hero in a bleak time, a stark place, and under impossible circumstances. Estleman's writing brings not only her characters to life, but also brings to life the landscape and historical pressures through which they travel. -- (Description by: Karen D. Toonen)
