Thirteen year old Yeh, of the Chippewa tribe, ran away to marry Julius LeVere, a trapper. He had an underground Soddy on an island in the middle of the Straits of Mackinaw which lies between Upper and Lower Michigan. It was a perfect love match between Yeh and Julius and a child was conceived. However, tragedy struck and she found herself alone with a child to raise. She was determined she would not return to the Chippewa tribe where her child, a half breed, might be treated as an outcast. The skills she learned from Julius became her means of survival. She trapped and transported the pelts by canoe to a trading post in the Upper Pennisula. She grieved the loss of her husband and was lonely, but five years after his death, Maurice Bouchard, a young trapper decides to be her protector and builds a cabin on her island. At first she resents the intrusion, but eventually she accepts the fact he is there to stay. Maurice falls in love with Yeh, but she clings to the memory of her dead husband.
