Summary
This enthralling story opens on the frontier in 1832 as Big John McTavish and Gabriel Gilray his metis protege are out hunting. For thirty years now Big John McTavish has been living with the metis at Pembina. The metis are a mixed-blood breed originally descended from Crees or members of other Indian tribes who crossed with French-Canadian or British trappers. While hunting McTavish and young Gabriel Gilray save a mountain trapper named Pike who is being pursued by Chippewas. Unfortunately in rescuing Pike Big John shoots Wolf Slayer one of Tall Clouds nephews. McTavish has long had friendly relations with the tribe but that could now be at an end. Because Pikes horse is also killed in the fracas he has no choice but to join Big John and take part in a planned buffalo hunt for another horse. This suits Pike whose real prey are the murderers of his partner two men known to live and hunt with the metis
Summary
"A intriguing tale of Mâetis buffalo hunts, a long-lost daughter, and a macabre secret. Big John McTavish has been hunting and trading among the Mâetis buffalo hunters of the Red River Valley for more than thirty years. He's a trusted member of the half-breed nation, and a leader of the mixed-bloods' twice-yearly buffalo hunts. However, when he returns to the settlements in the fall of 1832 with a mountain man he's rescued from a Chippewa war party, he has no way of knowing the chain of events the outsider is about to unleash on the unsuspecting hunters, or the kind of destruction that will follow them onto the buffalo ranges that border the lonely Missouri River. Before the hunters return to their homes along the river, Big John will learn the macabre secret that has brought the trapper from the far reaches of the Rocky Mountains. He will discover a daughter he thought he'd lost forever, and relive the horror that took her away. And the mâetis will come to realize that if they are to survive as an independent nation, they must forever free themselves of the influence not only of the powerful Hudson Bay Company, but also of the man they have viewed as their friend for more than a quarter of a century. Beneath a Hunter's Moon is a novel of honor and treason, love and betrayal, but mostly it is a story about a proud and wonderful people--the Mâetis of the Red River Valley. "--
