Carried away with his younger sons, Jakob is enslaved by the Seneca, while Joseph and Christian are adopted into different Lenape divisions. As the boys struggle to adapt to new lives, Jakob plots a perilous escape in spite of overwhelming odds against succeeding. Yet even if he gets away, can he survive a harrowing journey over the hundreds of miles of rugged terrain that lie between him and his Northkill community? Are his older son and daughter still alive? And can he find his boys and bring them home?
