Will Keen is a western man living his life in two different worlds - one white, one Piaute Indian. He dresses in white man's clothes and adopts many of his habits and mannerisms. Only high cheekbones and dark eyes that miss nothing give a hint of the Indian blood coursing through his veins. Will knows the western wilderness like no other because he was raised in it, and guides wagon trains westwards into Oregon Territory, braving savage lands and equally savage men - of all races - who prey on innocent wagon families. After a decade of guiding long lines of canvas-topped Conestoga wagons west, Will has no idea that his future will take a different turn when one person in a wagon train forces him to decide who he is and how will live from that point forward.
