Sinopse

His name is Wolfgang Steiner. He is working for the Ohio Company as a “Longhunter,” while it is building a fort at the confluence of the Allegheny, Ohio and Monongahela Rivers. He is on the western side of the Monongahela River when the British and Americans are run off their building site. Not knowing what is taking place on the opposite side of the river, he fears the worst and decides to take this opportunity to be free and head west. Wolfgang legend begins as he successfully ambushes the Indians pursuing him and evades the others who take up the war trail against him. Caves are his refuge. A wolf pup becomes his only companion. The following winter he is seriously mauled by a grizzly bear. Delaware Indians find and take him to a mysterious and feared Algonquin Sorceress and healer, known as Dark Moon. As the war drums on the eastern frontier beat, Dark Moon and Wolfgang decide to journey westward together. As they move west, they encounter hostile Frenchmen at Vincennes. Crossing the Mississippi River, they are attacked by Chickasaw Indians. They make many lasting friends among the Osage along their way. After they take their leave of the Osage, tragedy strikes them both. Wolfgang suffers in the Sand Hills and later Dark Moon is captured on the Niobrara River. In one of her visions, she has foreseen the end of their long journey and their inevitable confrontation with a great number of Indians. Wolfgang Steiner is well educated for the time period. He speaks German, French, and English. After his arrival in the colony, he learns the Delaware language, sign language and new survival skills from a friend, a Delaware warrior, Tamanend. The story makes use of conventional dialogue reinforced at appropriate times with Indian sign language. This is easy to follow and will give the reader a fuller sense of the historical setting.
