Claire McFarlane is a young Englishwoman traveling in the United States with her fiance, Sir Edward Garr, a supposed big game hunter who is actually a spy for the British-owned Hudson Bay Company. Claire is an exceptional artist whose ambition is to paint portraits of Indian warriors of the Great Plains and Rocky Mountains -- but her dreams may be compromised by Sir Edwards irrational desire to stop American movement into the Great Northwest.A young man named Quincannon carries his own dream into the wilderness, that of reestablishing the American Fur Company along the western seaboard. His love for Claire and his bitter rivalry with Edward Garr form the background for a harrowing journey across the mountains and deserts into the new land of promise at the end of the Oregon Trail.
