Description


The third and final volume of The Travels of Apa Oupspi opens in the Chanson mountains, where Huckleberry and his Blackfoot friend, Porcupine, spend the winter in the mountain cabin of two old trappers. After an unexpected death, he sets out alone pursuing his quest. He leaves his companions and strikes out for the Triple Divide with a pair of whiskey traders, who dip into their own wares. Hermit and Porcupine two days behind, follow the trail into an Indian camp and are taken captive. They become entangled in a controversy which reaches into Porcupine’s past, and ends in a trial by combat. Huckleberry indeed reaches the Triple Divide, the goal of his quest and finds something much different than he expected. The two friends reach the high mountains behind Huckleberry as the first winter blizzard sweeps over the divide. Reunited amidst peril, they travel back to Fort Wicket where an unlikely hostess gives them temporary shelter. They return to their mountain cabin, where Huckleberry recounts the results of his quest, as Hermit and Porcupine oversee his recuperation. Much to the surprise of Porcupine and Huckleberry, Hermit goes into town and returns with a new companion. The four of them take a steamboat back down the Missouri, where Huckleberry tries his hand at reconciliation with a young lady in the Dakotas. The story ends with two separate parties setting out down the Missouri again toward their diverse homecomings.
