Artemus, an old patriot, has donated two coffers full of coins to the American army, but these have been stolen at Tortoise Bank’s ford by resorting to the same trick that had been used, years earlier, in a battle against the English which took place on that same spot. Who knew about that past event? Perhaps Solange, Artemus’ housekeeper, is not as faithful as she seems to be or perhaps everything depends on the only survivor left from that ancient clash...
The English successfully play the trump card of an alliance with the Arikara Indians. But Coltello Nero, their sachem, is against it, but many are listening to Corvo Blu’s voice, which takes the opposite point of view. Can Mark manage to prevent the war drums from resounding again in the Ontario forests?
