Hawken is a rugged drifter and loner who meets and comes to rescue a young Shawnee woman, named "Spirit" in 1840s Tennessee, whom he leaves after saving her from a rouge group of Shawnee Indians. After taking up residence with an old fur trapper and old friend named Jeb Kline, Hawken later meets Spirit again, who runs away from a local fur trader named Tackett, to whom she is sold. Soon, Hawken is up against Tackett and a posse of hired killers, as well as a greedy and racist land owner, named Hickman, whose long abused son Noel narrates the entire story, comes to his and Spirit's aid to help them survive.
He took another man's woman. He killed another man's brother. Now he faces another kind of justice.

Did You Know?
I don't know who started all this talk about good always being mixed up with bad, and bad with good. All I know is, when people are alone, when there's no law to see to it that they got to stand inside the bounds; then they're either all good or all bad. And it's a tough thing for a boy to find out that his pa is one of the bad.
