Toward the end of the French and Indian War in 1761, when England and France are battling for a continent, Pierre takes his son and his son's friend with him to return the remains of his wife and child to the family graveyard in Acadie, Canada. When Pierre dies along the way, his son, Jean-Claude, promises to finish the journey. His friend Louis agrees to go with him.
The two boys are changed forever by their experiences in the wilderness as death stalks them along the way. At the end, if they survive, they must face the wrath of a vengeful Seneca warrior who swears to kill them for what they did to his brother.

This book is and action adventure with a gripping storyline. Scene description was vivid and intense. I could not put the book down until late at night. It is masterfully done with much suspense and many surprises, all of which are entertwined with the lives of 17th Century citizens in the Mississippi and Ohio River valleys. The story is an interesting historical account of life and living conditions in America two-and-a-half centuries past.
Once again, John Fracois does not disappoint. For lovers of historical fiction and tales of the south, Fracois offers up adventure and discovery in the lives of richly realized characters. Like James Lee Burke, Francois brings out the many flavors of cultures and places. This one shouldn't be missed.
The story begins deep in the south at the time of the French and Indian war. The characters are well developed and travel an accurate and interesting path through the early American wilderness to eventually reach Canada. If you have travelled the US and enjoy historically accurate novels you will enjoy this book. I certainly did. I am looking forward to reading this author's earlier works.
This is a man's man book! Historical 'Fiction' but well researched time period of pre-emergent America. The story moves well and is full of adventure. This novel gives insight to the interaction of Native Americans and the French. It draws a vivid picture of Native American life in that era. This is Francois's best work to date and we're hoping for more adventures!
