On the Ohio River, near present-day Wheeling, West Virginia, brave pioneers are preparing to defend their young settlement, Fort Henry, from a combined force of Shawnees, Delawares, and Brits. Betty Zane, sister of the fort's commander, newly returned from big-city life in late eighteenth-century Philadelphia, finds the frontier challenging and exciting. In one daring moment of a particularly bloody siege she risks her life to protect her family, friends, and, most of all, the soldier she loves from certain death. Ed Sala's rough-hewn voice perfectly suits both coarse backwoodsmen and fierce Native Americans. Sala's females are real, too, and his voice helps confirm their steely resolve. E.V.
