Celeste is thirteen years old. The only thing that really matters to her is the wild animals of her homeland - the Laurentian Mountains in Canada - which are dying out, one by one. She has spent recent years quietly fighting the local hunters and poachers, but they've finally caught up with her, beaten her to a pulp and left her for dead. When a wanderer by the name of Nile, who is hiding out, escaping the law in the US, finds her in a ditch, she is barely breathing. Through a drug-fuelled haze, he nurses Celeste back to health and together they set out to take on the men who have destroyed the natural wildlife and who hold the town in thrall. Working alone, in a place where man and his gun is king, they find themselves facing grave danger at every turn, trying anything to stop the bears, birds and panthers joining the extinction club...
