A Mississippi Valley Novel
Mark Lafitte is convinced he is a dead man when he is marooned on the swampy shore of the French Louisiana Colony. But eventually French traders rescue him and lead him back to a dangerous settlement along the Mississippi River named New Orleans. Lafitte works relentlessly over the years to build a good life for himself and his ever-growing family, and battles alongside his fellow colonials for the survival of his new-world home. But the dark clouds of his past never forsake him, and eventually the time comes when he has no choice but to fight for what he believes in, and for his own life as well.
