Description: Now around a story fire, as you know, I would begin with Creation and follow the story of the People down to the time when this happened. But this is among friends, and you know those things, so I will go ahead.

Thus begins the tale told by Pipe Bearer, a young holy man of the Elk Dog People, who sets out with his wife, Otter Woman, on a vision quest to find the meaning of the sacred coloring on a foal born to his mare. The colt bears markings resembling the headdress of a holy man, the medicine hat. This latest novel in Don Coldsmith's beloved Spanish Bit Saga of the Plains Indians is told as a story around the lodge fire in the voices of both Pipe Bearer and Otter.

Encouraged by a coyote, his spirit guide, Pipe Bearer is drawn across the northern plains by his dream vision of a spirit horse. Traveling in the guise of a trader, he leads Otter through the country of the Cheyenne and Arapaho and into the homelands of the Crow and Blackfeet and the enemies of those tribes, the Sioux. When fire strikes the plains, the young couple are joined in their desperate flight to safety by the Arapaho trader, Lone Walker, and his beautiful and courageous Lakota wife, Plum Blossom. Always seeking clues to the meaning of the medicine hat colt, the four meet and observe the customs of many bands. Driven by fate and circumstance, Pipe Bearer and Otter must make life-and-death choices to survive their hazardous quest.

Leading the reader on a journey that recreates Plains Indian life, Medicine Hat is both a love story and the tale of a daring search for spiritual meaning in the American West of the 1700s.
