It is smooth sailing for Meg Harris and her lover Eric Odijk as they canoe down the DeMontigny River. Maybe not quite as smooth as Meg would like since they are hitting some rapids but all in all the trip is going well at least for awhile. Ericís daughter Tehtíaa and her boyfriend Larry are traveling with them. Meg and Tehtíaa are not close and Meg and Eric donít care much for Larry but all are coping well.

Eric and Meg run into some rough water and Meg is thrown over. She makes it safely to shore where she discovers the remains of what she thinks might be a murder victim. When she reconnects with Eric she makes the decision to bring the police into the matter.

Once the group gets back home Meg finds out that the skeleton that she found is the remains of a woman and the oldest human remains ever to be found in Quebec. This discovery brings much trouble and sorrow to both Meg and Eric as well as Ericís tribe. Ericís tribe believes that the bones of the ancient woman should be returned to the place where Meg made the discovery. The authorities believe otherwise.

When illness strikes the tribe the blame is placed on the fact that the remains have been moved. A man is murdered and members of the tribe are suspects. Things go from bad to worse until Meg and Tehtíaa finally combine efforts to find the remains and return them to their resting place. The problem is getting there without being caught in the forest fires raging through the area.

The River Runs Orange is an exciting book and the scenery described is beautiful. The relationships between the Indians and the authorities in Canada make for interesting reading.
