In the book a bold pioneer brings his family to the American wilderness with great aspirations, but his dreams were crushed when natives kidnap his wife and son. Over the years he searched relentlessly for his lost family members. His son was raised by natives and later married a native girl. They enjoyed a life of natural freedom that his father only dreamed of. As the generations passed the legend of a boy being kidnapped by natives and his marriage to a native was the only family legends that survive the centuries.
Then from the black of the forest came the sound of a wildly insane beast; it was a war cry. At that instant a wild Indian on horseback came flying out of the darkness. Feathers on his head waved in the air as the horse leaped. Leather strips tied to his arms flung back and forth. His horse bolted out of darkness and across the clearing. He descended on the people like a bolt of lightning, slinging his spear in large circles as he came closer.
