:"There's miles between us and the fort, miles of wild country filled with Indians eager to cut our throats."It's 1855, and tensions in the Pacific Northwest between white settlers and native tribes have led to scores of deaths on both sides.

Through skirmishes, raids, close calls, and betrayal-William's assumptions, beliefs, courage, and friendships will all be challenged in a few breakneck weeks.

Lots of thrills in this historical fiction about the battle of Seattle. There are heart-thumping scenes aplenty and some vivid characters. My favourite is Charlie Salitat who dominates every scene he is in. There are heroic acts in this and discussions of faith. Well worth a read however there is some violence that may frighten those younger than teenagers.
