Gateway, Alberta, 1911. The coming of the railroad to the Canadian Rockies has brought a parade of newcomers to the Bow Valley, including poacher Herbie Wishart, who has reinvented himself as a trail guide. Herbie becomes outfitter for a fossil-hunting expedition headed by a prominent Washington, D.C., archaeologist. Rumours say that the findings of the secrecy-shrouded Hodgson expedition could overturn all previous knowledge about early life forms. But when an early snowstorm hits and trailside grudges come to a head, the expedition mysteriously disappears. Despite all efforts from that year on to solve, or bury, the mystery, the disappearance will haunt Gateway, and define the futures of Herbie Wishart and his stubbornly female descendants.
