The last epic journey before her life changes forever.
Susanna Wilkins will do anything to make her father's final dream come true, including trek along the path Lewis and Clark explored into the untamed wilds of the Rocky Mountains. Every mile is more crucial now that lung cancer is stealing Pa's last days faster than she can come to terms with losing him. The journey becomes harder than she ever expected, but paddling upriver through fierce rapids and fighting hungry grizzlies isn't what terrifies her the most.
Beaver Tail endured more than he can stand from the women in his Blackfoot camp, but the last disaster gave him the final shove he needed to join this band of brothers searching for one of their group who's gone missing. The last thing he expected was to find a white woman and her sick father stranded at the base of massive waterfall. His plan is to help them carry their oversize canoe and supplies, then leave them to their strange mission. Yet, the more he learns about the pair, the more he realizes his life is about to be derailed—again.
From a USA Today bestselling author comes another epic journey through breathless landscapes and adventure so intense, lives will never be the same.

Adventure, courage and love
The author has once again written an incredible book that makes me want to return to the mountains! I loved the details about the incredible views and the creatures that our intrepid travelers encountered. Susanna is helping her father realize his dream of seeing the mountains, by following the footprints of Lewis and Clark, in spite of the fact that he is suffering from an incurable malady. This quest has many perils, seen and unseen. Will they reach the goal before it is too late?
This is a story of courage and love - to set out with the purpose of fulfilling, not your dream, but the dream of someone else. How many of us would consider this a worthwhile venture? The faith portrayed by the characters shines through all the hardships, encouraging retrospection not only for those around them, but also the reader.
