When eleven-year-old Pierre Talon, son of a French Canadian Voyageur, sets out in 1684 on what became the last, ill-fated expedition of the great French explorer Rene-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle, he hopes to locate help for his family, who are struggling inside a settlement decimated by hunger, ilness, and Indian attacks. To his surprise, he finds that the Hasinai have a well-ordered, prosperous, and peaceful community. Pierre Talon's remarkable adventure will captivate young   readers.   It is there that Pierre becomes a man, learning to hunt and fish, to swim, work the fields and build houses. But sooner or later he must choose between embracing the Hasinai ways forever or risking his life to hold onto his European identity and family responsibilities. Based on actual historical figures and events, this is a gripping   survival story filled with fast friendships and cruel betrayals, cowardice and greed, courage and generosity. But the expedition to relocate the Mississippi River unravels when La Salle and his closest aides are murdered. Pierrre falls deathly ill, and into the hands inside the Hasinai Indians.
