To the wonderfully independent Alaskans. When the temperature dropped at night, despite the fact the skies barely darkened, the river rumbled like distant thunder. She was amazed by the reddish-colored salmon as they battled the fierce current on their long journey upriver to their breeding grounds. It almost looked as if the river was bleeding. But mostly the river awed Lisa because, exactly twenty-six years ago, she'd seen her mother and baby sister drown in the turbulent, foaming wake of a cruise ship.

Book by Harper, Karen
The story with its vivid characters, descriptions of place and time, dangers and betrayals, is a palatable way to understand an interesting and important part of the white settlement of the US West. It is a good adult read but also reasonably appropriate for teen/YA readership as there isn't too much graphic stuff, just some scenes of passion that don't become too explicit.

I have read extensively about the actual history of the Mandans, so enjoyed the descriptions of what I already knew about their story and found it accurate. However, their story does not end well so inevitably the book ends on a down note although the author seems to downplay the tragedy of the tribe. However the book is well written, the characters more or less, mostly more, believable. I think you will enjoy it if you can get a copy. I had to borrow from the library.
I first came across this book as a story in a magazine. I enjoyed reading it so much I intended to go to the bookstore and buy it, but I never got around to it. Then 4 years later I came across that magazine again boxed up with some books and papers. I flipped through it until I found the story "River of Sky" and right then I looked the book up here on Karen Harper has done a great job of weaving in the fictional characters so they fit into the story with the actual historical characters that lived in that day. The book had lots of nice twists, but also a great story. This is a book about self-discovery, following your dreams and your heart, and also about a tribe of Native Americans called the Mandan. Some of the actual historical events included in the book about the Native Americans are indeed very sobering, and sad. If you like books with romance, adventure and enjoy reading about the Native Americans in the early days of the frontier I recommend it to you.
