But Abes visions of a privileged apprenticeship in the Sassaporta Brothers empire based in Savannah, Georgia, are soon replaced with the grim reality of indentured servitude in his uncle Isadores camp town near Greensborough, North Carolina.

The daughter of a powerful Cherokee chief, it has been nearly 20 years since she renounced her familys plans for her to marry a wealthy white man.

As the US government implements the appalling logistics of transporting the Native American tribes of the South to the western side of the Mississippi River, Abe tries desperately to interveneand Jacob and Dark Water fight for their lives.
