It is 1857 in the American Pacific Northwest where less than 3500 non-natives have begun settlements. Tensions between local indigenous tribes and pioneer settlers are growing. The U.S. territorial governor has called for a “war of extermination” against natives.
Complicating it all, the local British and U.S. Armies begin preparing for war in a boundary dispute.
Haida native Anah-nawitka, widely known by native foes and white settlers as “The Black Wind,” addicted to the rush of his kills and the satisfaction of delivering vengeance to the encroaching white colonists, embarks on yet another predatory raid to the south.
Boston-bred Emmy Evers carves out a life for herself and her family amidst her island home’s wild streams and woods while her husband Isaac, a prominent local leader, is frequently away.
This is a frontier where a tenuous peace will soon give way, and test the will and endurance of one exceptional woman.
