A murder mystery set in the Chilcotin region of British Columbia, this novel probes the shadow line between the spirits and reality; between white man's justice and a circle of elders. The story is about Noah, the adopted Native son of a white ranching family, who is caught in the middle of his parents' war. Educated in Victoria, he returns to manage the family's ranch. Charged with the murder of his father, he is tried by a white jury and later by a Native circle of elders who are also defending the land against the incursions of strangers. In the surprising conclusion, Noah hears the truth.
