1763. It is the last spring of hope at rough-timbered Fort Detroit. The night echoes with the war songs of Pontiac, calling on the nations' to drive out the invader. Frontier trader Owen Sutherland is torn between the Indians who nurtured him and his love for a widowed colonist. And as the magnificent forest wilderness blazes with war, a new love is forged in the fires of a nation being born. This is the first of a series about the winning of America's heartland, the "Old Northwest" that was our first great frontier.
