Overview

Left behind by her "sting" companion and lover, Roman Quentin Roberts, Mary Madonna Evangelista stows away on the ship SS Niantic, bound for the gold fields of California. Pregnant and dressed like a man to achieve passage, she is discovered by the ship's Captain into whose hands her male child is delivered.

Once in San Francisco, Mary Madonna reverts to her most profitable profession in order to survive the poor economy and harsh ecology . . . vowing to raise and protect her son, whom she has named from the stars. Only to lose him when fourteen-year-old O'Ryan Gnarr Roberts is forced to leave the city after beating two whoremongers nearly to death with an axe handle.

O'Ryan rides away upon the horse provided to him by Madonna as her final gift. Later, when he arrives at Sutter's Mill, he learns of another kind of gold. This gold is made of iron rails.
