Equipped with nothing but a description of the man who led the raid and the few items the raiders left behind, Isaiah and his father take to the road with one goal in mind: justice. When it is clear justice cannot be obtained without bloodshed, they go to meet General Washington and join the American Revolution.
With his father forming a cavalry of riflemen, Isaiah learns the ways of the wilderness, hunting, and combat from men with their own reasons for joining the war. Realizing he is now a part of a cause bigger than himself, Isaiah gradually finds out what it means to be a man.
