Not wanting to fight against the Americans in the War of 1812, Eben McNinch decides to travel north of Fort Gibraltar in the Manitoba Territory to trap beaver. He befriends a Cree Indian tribe and he is allowed to live and trap on their land. Eben soon becomes a legend and is called "Big Red Beard Not Afraid."

After the end of the War of 1812, the Canadian Parliament has concerns about President Jefferson's proclamation of America's Manifest Destiny and its right of expansion to the Pacific Coast. Eben McNinch, because of his wilderness knowledge and amiable relations with the natives, is asked to accompany and guide a military party along the 49th Parallel, the border with the United States, to ascertain and stop any American settlers or trappers from homesteading in Canada and annexing the land for the United States.

Eben's grandson follows two Leet brothers south into the United States to avenge the brutal death of his folks. But the Leet clan isn't going to simply let the grandson, Eben, get away with killing one of their own, and Boufford Leet swears an oath to avenge the death of six Leet men.

About the Author

Randall Probert lived and was raised in Strong,Maine; a small town in the western mountains of Maine. Six months after graduating from high school, he left the small town behind for Baltimore, Maryland and a Marine Engineering School, situated downtown near what was then called "The Block". Because of bad weather, the flight from Portland to New York was canceled and this made him late for the connecting flight to Baltimore. A young kid and alone from the backwoods of Maine finally found his way to Washington DC and boarded a bus from there to Baltimore. After leaving the Merchant Marines, he went to an aviation school in Lexington, Massachusetts.

During his interview for Maine Game Warden he was asked, "You have gone from the high seas to the air. . .are you sure you want to be a Game Warden?" Mr. Probert retired from Warden Service in 1997 and started writing historical novels about the history in the areas where he patrolled as a game warden, with his own experiences as a game warden as those of the wardens in his books. Mr. Probert has since expanded his purview and has written 2 science fiction books, PARADIGM and PARADIGM II, and has written a mystical adventure, AN ESOTERIC JOURNEY. Mr. Probert is also currently working on another historical novel, which should be available in the spring, 2015.
