Trying to fix time, an eleven-year-old boy from 1969 travels back to the fur-trapping origins of St. Louis in 1769, and then to the oppressively thriving city of 1869 bordering the "wild west." During his comic and harrowing adventures, he follows alternate possibilities and is faced with difficult choices concerning equal rights and the value of a single life.
