This tale so closely resembles James Fenimore Cooper's "The Last of the Mohicans" that I'm surprised the author isn't sued for plagarism. Anyone who has seen the movie with Daniel Day Lewis will recognize it immediately. The storyline & characters are practically the same; only the details are different. That said, the book will keep you interested; well-written.
GREAT story! Reminded me alot of Last of the Mohicans. You won't be disappointed.
LAST OF THE DUNCANS
Leaving behind the Highlands for the New World at the tender age of ten, Connor Duncan quickly learned that only the fit and the fortunate survive. He was both, becoming a scout and an expert marksman...a man to be reckoned with. He knew his way through the backwoods as well as any Shawnee, but he was far less comfortable in the drawing rooms of Williamsburg. What was a rough-hewn frontiersman like he to do with a sheltered beauty like the governor's niece? But there seemed to be no way to avoid the "Virgin Widow," especially when she insisted on accompanying him on a dangerous mission through the wilderness to Fort Savannah. Neither capture, nor torture, nor the violent birth pangs of a young nation could keep them apart or stop the founding of a brand new dynasty of Duncans.
