Four MacGregor generations have passed since the Civil War. Two sisters, granddaughters of Ian MacGregor, form an unlikely relationship with photojournalist Derrick Nolen, and attempt to discover the truth behind a long-lost family history and a legendary treasure.
But beware the heart and mind of those who have lost it and threaten those who would seek to find it. Two family legends intersect at the site of an unrecorded historical accident with opposing force and dire outcomes. A hundred-fifty-year-old canoe may provide an alluring clue that reopens both legends and a clash of wills.
