Nigel must choose between entering an orphanage or entering an apprenticeship on a mule train.
To Nigel’s horror, Comanches slaughter Reverend John Blackthorn and his family before his father preaches one word. Nigel survives by following his mother’s instructions to hide in a hollow tree. Nigel prays for God to send help. Instead, Pascal LeBrun, a roaming muleteer, rides to the smoke of the burning wagons to find Nigel, who believed cooking is a woman’s work. Alone, he doesn’t even know how to cook to survive. Pascal solves that problem.
Plump, lazy, and spoiled, Nigel enters an unwelcome new world–work or starve. He finds survival is the way of life on the prairie. Worse yet, English is a little used third language.
