The British are looking for further trading areas and obtain the services of one Francis Enleigh to go as far west as possible with the intent of establishing trade relations among whatever Indian tribes he runs across in so doing. It was a venture into America no white man had ever suc ceeded in before. Despard is made Enleight's servant, since he speaks some Indian language and knows their customs. Little does Despard realize when he starts on the trip that it will be he instead of Enleigh who will be left to do the venturing and trademaking before it is all over. This is a tale of adventure based on an actual occurance in American history. It is a unique story of early-American settlement, plus an in-depth look at some of our original settlers, the American Indian. It is history, adventure and even a ghost story, all rolled into one neat package, a package worth opening immediately. ; 157 pages; Signed by Author
