The search for a missing history professor, who vanished while visiting the Wind River Reservation, draws Vicky Holden and Father John O'Malley into a twenty-year-old mystery involving the disappearance of another historian and into a complex puzzle from the past involving a young Shoshone woman named Sacajawea. By the author of The Lost Bird.

Blackwell North Amer
While doing research on the reservation, a college professor and longtime friend of Vicky Holden disappears into thin air. The professor was researching the life of Sacajawea - the Native American woman who helped guide the Lewis and Clark expedition through the American wilderness. According to Shoshone and Arapaho legend, her final resting place is on the reservation.
But not everyone believes that the buried woman was the real Sacajawea. As Vicky and Father John look into the professor's disappearance, they find that twenty years ago another female historian had also disappeared on the reservation. And she had also been researching the life of Sacajawea. The mystery soon centers around Sacajawea's hidden memoirs - which may prove history wrong.
Why would someone want to keep the memoirs hidden? As Vicky and Father John come ever closer to digging up the truth, they realize that the culprit is already planning to make them disappear into history.

The writing here is just as good as the rest of the series, as is the strength of the relationship between Father John and Vicky. What didn't quite ring true is the connection with Sacajawea and the nastiness of those who come after Vicky's friends who are researching the famous woman who led Lewis and Clark.
