Dag and Fawn have reached the end of the river and it's time for the members of Tent Bluefield to plan their next move. Berry and Whit plan to return to Berry's home and build another boat -- Bo, Hod and Hawthorn will go with them. Remo and Barr plan to travel with Dag and Fawn for a while longer. Dag plans to just head back up the river. Fawn has other plans. She knows Dag needs help with his plan to become a medicine maker and for that he needs to find a Lakewalker medicine man to talk to him. With the name of the best maker in the area and his home camp, she sits Dag down to tell him her plan. Of course that begins a chain of events that take our band in directions they never expected.

From official release/information:

From back of book: Conclusion to the Sharing Knife series. Now at the end of their river journey, Dag and Fawn must retrace their steps...if only they knew where they were headed. As Dag's magical abilities have grown, so has his concern about who--or what--he is becoming. Apprenticed to a master groundsetter in a southern Lakewalker camp, Dag learns to harness his powers, even as he grows frustrated with the camp's rigid mores that adversely affect Fawn.

But the world as Dag and Fawn know it is changing, and the traditional Lakewalker ways cannot hold every malice at bay forever. When the couple and a small band of friends and followers resume their journey north, they will be confronted by Dag's biggest fear and worst nightmare: a malice that grew unnoticed, and may now be too strong to control...
