At the turn of the 19th century, changes unimagined are about to unfold. The novel's main characters include Isobel, a Mexican woman who is kidnapped by the Apaches. She learns the healing arts, and then is stolen by the Utes, sold and traded until she ends up with the Piikáni (members of the Blackfoot Confederation, formerly known as Peigan). She becomes known as Buffalo Stone Woman. Donal Thomas is another main character. As a "Náápiikoa" or white man, he is serving the third year of a seven year term of indenture to the Hudson's Bay Company. He is sent to the Rocky Mountains to live among the Piikáni to learn their language and foster trade. The book is partially based on the works of Canadian trader, explorer, and mapmaker David Thompson. "Náápiikoan Winter" spans a continent, examining the cultures in flux at the passing of one era and the painful birth of another.
