In the year 1778, the War for Independence rages, and Becky Landers forms a plan to join the audacious George Rogers Clark on his dangerous mission, bringing gunpowder to capture the British forts of Kaskaskia and Vincennes. She hopes to track down her brother, taken the year before by Indians. In this vivid and well-researched frontier novel, the historic figures of Daniel Boone, Clark, Sam Kenton, the Frenchman De Quindre, the Indian Black Fish and others interweave with Becky’s adventures in as colorful a manner as their remarkable personalities deserve.
