In the summer of 1858, young Jedediah P.Carpenter finds himself orphaned and alone on the Oregon trail in the middle of nebraska territory. He also finds himself smitten with the beautiful Emma Cooper, three years his senior, who has ridden off into the morning sunrise with the despicable Zeke Jones. Jed's will to reach his families original destination in Oregon is hampered by his lack of survival skills and the specter of the oncoming winter. Through an unlikely true friendship with a "Damn Indian", Pete Scares-the Ponies, Jedediah learns and hones those skills. Instead of heading for Oregon,though, Jed finds himself in a little mining camp called Buckskin Joe in the early days of the great Pikes Peak gold rush. His whole life takes a turn when the mysterious "Silverheels" comes to town and he experiences a love that will carry him through fifty years of solitude and beyond.... the kind of love we all seek. John Erwins's novel, "Into the Snow", is told through his colorful, humorous, and yes, despicable characters, some of whom actually existed during the early years of the territory that became the state of Colorado. These characters, brought to life by 14 different voice over artists, along with sound effects, will draw you right into the Rocky Mountains, where you will hear and truly "experience"
