Young Elizabeth, also known as Spirit of the Moon, travels with her father and a company of Hudson's Bay trappers into the unknown country of the Coyotero and becomes the strength and hope of the entire expedition as it battles a murderous band of renegades and hostile Native Americans

Blackwell North Amer
In the summer of 1841, a brigade of Hudson's Bay Company fur trappers ride south from Pierre's Hole, Wyoming Territory, on a fateful "last hunt" - searching for beaver in the wilds of the Coyotero, the Apache country of the Gila River.
Joining her stepfather, Coquin, leader of the expedition, is a young Nez Perce woman, Spirit of the Moon, who has been "promised" to James Condon, son of a powerful Hudson's Bay official, but on the arduous trail to the south, she falls in love with another man, the adventurer Baker McLeod.
Spirit of the Moon, through whose eyes the story unfolds, must fight battles on every front as the brigade works its way to the virgin trapping grounds of the Coyotero. She must fight Coquin, whose career depends upon her marriage to James Condon, and she must deal with Condon himself. And the expedition itself faces terrible danger - Etienne LaGrange, leader of a renegade band of trappers, murderers, and thieves; hostile Mojaves, Utes, and Apaches, and all the natural perils befalling the brigade - hunger, thirst, and madness.
