A young boy named Pierre joins La Salle's expedition. After the explorer is murdered, Pierre becomes first a captive and then a compatriot of Hasinai Indians. Set in the late seventeenth century, the densely detailed historical novel is at its most successful while offering insight into American colonial history and a now vanished native culture.
