When his family's nemesis, the evil trapper George Burton, suddenly reappears after a long absence, young Ben MacDonald runs off in fright and soon finds himself being whisked down the Red River in a rowboat without any oars. His father and brother, finding Ben gone and convinced that Burton has gotten him, set off on a desperate search. Meanwhile, Ben drifts into Lake Winnipeg and the home of the Cree tribe, whom he has been brought up to fear.
Will Ben ever be able to elude Burton and safely navigate his way through dangerous Indian territory to find his way home? This suspenseful survival story, rich in historical and natural lore, is sure to satisfy the legions of fans of the first story about Ben and his family, Incident at Hawk's Hill, and to appeal to new readers as well.
