In 1917 a young man left the land where he was born to fight the war to end all wars -- to fly planes, to know courage, death, and loss. And when Steven Cartwright came back from the glory and the fury, he went straight to an isolated cabin in the Rocky Mountains, where an old man had waited for him and never strayed from young Steven's heart: Cat Brules, legendary Indian scout, mountain man, storyteller, and teacher.

Now by a flickering Rocky Mountain campflre, Cartwright sits with a beautiful young woman and tells her the story of Cat Brules -- and the stories that Brules told him: of wild horses and wild men, of war and peace, and of love between a man and a woman. And as the flames flicker in their faces, Cartwright knows that two things are happening at once. In the shadow of Brules, he is falling in love. And in the presence of a legend, he is untangling the central of mystery of his own life: how an infant girl born to Wild Rose, the great love of Brules's life, was lost and then found again -- and became the blood link between the teacher and his disciple.
