Rebecca Sarah Deering, at the age of six, begins a lifelong, mystical relationship with Blackheart, a huge black wolf who she is able to communicate with in a spiritual manner. The relationship blossoms while Blackheart lives, then continues even after he dies, their soles eternally locked together. He remains a guiding influence on Rebecca's life until she finally passes on following a lifetime of accomplishment and heartbreak.


This is a tale of profound faith and guidance and speaks to the lost relationships with all other living things that we, as humans, have squandered recklessly. However, Buckskin Girl and Blackheart addresses this in a sensitive and non-judgmental manner. Most of all, it's a story of a single woman's life and how events in that life have a strange and compelling influence on the one person she shares her blood with, yet through circumstance has never met.
