Angus McCaw and his Ranger friends take part in the infamous and much debated 1759 Raid on Odanak, a small Native village just south of Quebec City, and endure the subsequent hardships from returning from that terrible ordeal. Angus and his close knit 'band of brothers' soon march on Montreal in 1760, then go on to travel with Robert Rogers westward to help put down the Pontiac Rebellion at Detroit in 1763.
With the French & Indian War now over, Angus and his 'Band of Brothers' follow their rich and very eccentric leader, Captain Putney Smyth, back to London to claim his rich inheritance.
The rough, backwoods boys, along with several Mohawk braves led by Tahnahani, the blood brother of Angus, have adventures from the steamy brothels of London to the windswept Highlands of Scotland. After a time, 'Sir Putney' finances a 'privateering expedition' to the 'Sugar Islands', where they try their hand at being legalized pirates for the king!
The adventures continues with kidnappings and daring rescues and book two ends when on an April morning in 1776, WAR breaks out between the Thirteen Colonies and Great Britain --- and the 'Band of Brothers' are forced to choose whose side they will fight on in the coming revolution!
