Gwen Peters has come a long way from being a Home Child in Ontario. Now at thirteen, Gwen is learning to take care of herself. The year is 1898, and Gwen is leaving Brantford on the brand-new railway for Calgary. There, she will start life over with Mrs. Brown, making friends who have come to Canada's West to start a new life as well. But as problems arise in town, Gwen gets the feeling that shifty-eyed gentlemen that traveled with her from Ontario might be causing trouble for her and the new friends she has made. Gwen must use the survival lessons she learns throughout her journey to help build her world in the way her heroine, Mohawk poet E. Pauline Johnson, would have, to make her community a place that everyone can call home.
