Jacket Description/Flap:
Filled with action, adventure, mystery, and historical detail, the Sackett saga is an unforgettable achievement by one of America's greatest storytellers. In Jubal Sackett, the second generation of this great American family pursues a destiny in the wilderness of a sprawling new land.
Kindred spirits on a restless quest...
Jubal Sackett's urge to explore drove him westward, and when a Natchez priest asks him to undertake a nearly impossible quest, Sackett ventures into the endless grassy plains the Indians call the Far Seeing Lands. He seeks a Natchez exploration party and its leader, Itchakomi. It is she who will rule her people when their aging chief dies, but first she must vanquish her rival, the arrogant warrior Kapata. Sackett's quest will bring him danger from an implacable enemy ... and show him a life -- and a woman -- worth dying for.


Marc Notes:
Jubal Sackett journeys westwards into the vast wilderness of 17th century America and discovers the perils of the frontier, a new way of life among the Indians, and the love of a beautiful Natchez Indian princess.

Publisher Marketing:
Wilderness explorer Jubal Sackett was the son of Barnabas Sackett, the first of that name to come to the New World. Jubal feared no man, nor backed away from any challenge. His fierce determination to blaze new trails took him across the vast savage North America continent where no white man had been before. Living and fighting among the Indian tribes, Jubal Sackett forged a legend as powerful medicine man they called "Ni'kwana, master of mysteries." And with Itchakomi, the proud Natchez princess, he walked the path of courage that future Sacketts would follow.
