In Going Home, the year is 1832, six years after Skye deserted the Royal Navy, and now he has a chance to return to England to clear his name and take up employment with the Hudsons Bay Company. But Mister Skye, as he insists on being called, is as much a magnet for trouble as he is a legend amoung mountain men, and this opportunity of a lifetime begins to disintegrate almost from the moment it is presented to him.With his devoted wife Victoria and an eccentric botanist named Alistair Nutmeg, Skye makes his way west to Fort Vancouver to begin his journey home. But when the Hudsons Bay Ship Cadboro makes a stopover in Mexican California, Skyes luck -- generally bad to begin with -- runs out. Identified as a Navy deserter, he is forced to make a run for it into the wilderness, where he faces Mexican bandits, Indians, thirst, starvation, and despair -- and where he learns where home really is and what honor really means.
