A dance at Fort Boonesborough is interrupted by Flathead Joseph, a halfbreed slave trader. He has a young Indian girl with him whom he claims is a Cherokee Princess...and a white girl. Her name is Tekawitha McLeod and she is the daughter of the Cherokee Chief Menewa. When Daniel confronts Menewa about this he admits she is white and taken from a raiding party but he wants her back. Daniel refuses when he realizes he knew her family. The Indians are determined to fight to get her back and the settlers of Boonesborough are just as determined to fight to keep her.
