The Huron-Iroquois rivalry, now growing vicious, courses through this novel, and these three are its principal characters.. . a story of blood and hope, suspicion and trust, hatred and love, that comes to a head when Jesuit and Huron join together against the stupendous wrath of the Iroquois, when everything that any of them has ever known or believed in faces nothing less than annihilation.
