This is a story of a People--the Schi'tsu'umsh Indians, known today as the Coeur d'Alene Tribe in Northern Idaho. The story spans several generations of a Schi'tsu'umsh family, starting in the early 1700s, before the tribe's widespread contact with European settlers. Set amidst the tribe's originally claimed territory, which spans present day Northern Idaho, Eastern Washington and Western Montana, the novel recounts a time when the tribe was governed by laws based exclusively on traditional teachings and the rules of nature.
