It is a chance at a new life for Aiden and Maddy, but one that is two thousand rough and perilous miles away. "It's said thereâs a grave a mile on the Oregon Trail," Jackson tells them bluntly. And Aiden soon learns that the greatest dangers go beyond storms, stampedes, and rattlesnakes. When smallpox, "the devilâs paint," threatens an Indian community Aiden has befriended, his loyalties, wits, and courage are severely tested.
Adventure-filled and historically accurate, Victoria McKernanâs novel captures both the peril and stunning beauty of the frontier West in an epic American story at once sweeping and intimate, heartbreaking and hopeful.
