But when an old Indian prophet warns of a different future and Grey fatefully encounters Wallulah, Multnomah's gentle daughter, tragedy follows.Set in 1690s prehistoric Oregon, this regional classic was the first work of fiction by a Northwest writer to feature Native Americans as main characters.

Harris offers interpretive content and a biography of the author.
