When Anne Techa learns that the landmark Turtle building near the American Falls has been purchased by a mysterious Native American corporation, she fears that new development in downtown Niagara Falls will threaten her historic home by the upper rapids. The man behind the purchase, a Seneca Indian named John Lone, is hoping that his project in Niagara Falls will bring him long-sought acclaim.
Teenage Phoebe Techa enters a rebranded Maid of the Mist beauty contest hoping to win fame and fortune - and a ticket out of Niagara Falls. Her friend Leonard Mountview, whose grandfather is a prominent Tuscarora Indian activist for native rights, struggles to find his footing between two worlds.
The future always bumps against the past in Niagara Falls: Mark Twain, Red Jacket, Abraham Lincoln, Nikola Tesla, and Marilyn Monroe are among historical figures in this novel whose ties to Niagara still resound.
