Journeying on the Overland Trail in 1846, America Hollis loses her husband and all her earthly goods in a storm. Pregnant and alone, a family takes her into their wagon train. But when she gives birth, they steal her newborn daughter for their own and leave her for dead. A young Paiute woman, Dancing Feather, rescues her, and together with her half brother they set out to recover America's daughter--and to forge a bridge between two worlds.
