Renno, now a war chief of the mighty Seneca, is called upon once again to help the English settlers. This time, the Pimlico of Virginia are threatening to attack the settlers and the Spanish are a growing threat from the south.

For a 2 month period I went through the first dozen of this series. I remember enjoying it in high school and they have collected dust on the shelf since. Every time I looked at them I thought I should read them again but not having an electronic version hampered my desire. I finally got back into the world of the Seneca tribe when the pilgrims first came to this country. Following multipal generations of this family is enjoyable. Held up pretty good.
