Summary

Summary

Joshua Brightwood, his daughter Marlette, and six companions leave Philadelphia in search of land suitable for American settlers. The expedition's guide, Ross Chestnut, is a man of strength and mystery who carries the burdens of his past with quiet dignity. Marlette grows as she learns trust she endures in the face of incredible hardship. This is more than a memorable love story. It is the tale of real historical events leading up to the annexing of the Oregon Territory.
