This is a novel about life in the Wabash Valley during the French Colonial period. It has been over three centuries since the first of these French-speaking adventurers paddled their canoes down the Wabash River and the details of their everyday lives are still largely a mystery. The novel is based on a mix of facts and folklore, designed to entertain readers and inspire them to learn more about the Wabash Valley. Told from the perspective of a boy and his mother surrounded by actual characters and events in history including the establishment of the first permanent European settlement in present day Indiana now known as Vincennes.
