Description: Earl Murray, among the most recognized names in historical fiction of the American West, is an authority on the Plains Indians, mountain men, and the life and times of the Rocky Mountain West. In his latest novel, he tells the story of Isabella Bird, daughter of an Anglican clergyman, who defies her family and Victorian era social ideals, and in the 1870s leaves home at a young age to travel the world -- alone. Of her adventures, which include a journey into the mouth of an active volcano in Hawaii, none is more daunting than her determination to be the first woman to climb Long's Peak, the highest point in the Colorado Rockies.

Although she is an accomplished horsewoman and is accustomed to hardships, Miss Bird faces undreamed-of obstacles in her Colorado adventure: getting to the floor of the mountain involves travelling on dim or nonexistent trails in desolate country, fighting mosquitoes, bears, hostile settlers, incompetent guides, trail injuries, hunger and thirst. And the one man who can help her gain the summit of the mountain is an outlaw named "Rocky Mountain Jim" Nugent, a one-eyed trapper who single-handedly guards the settlement of Estes Park, the gateway to Long's Peak.

In the Arms of the Sky, based on the real-life exploits of English traveler Isabella Bird, is the unforgettable story of a woman who let her curiosity, talent, intelligence, and heart serve as her life's guide.
