The book follows the fictitious Choctaw family of William Melton, who was a revered elder of the village and advisor to the Village Chief. William sought to protect his family on the journey as they traveled by foot, horseback, steamer, and wagon. Abuse, hunger, illness, and death plagued the displaced Choctaw. William finally resettled his family beside the Red River in Kulli Tukoli where the long, arduous journey ended. Each family began a new life with one horse, one rifle, and one can of gun powder. Because of their skillful trading, hunting, and farming, the Melton family soon prospered. William came to know a Christian missionary who became a trusted friend who educated the young braves and taught the families to live successfully with whites in the new land.
