The vast unsettled lands of Florida in the 1850s are a magnet drawing men and women from all backgrounds toward the promise of fresh beginnings. Most of them are honest, hard-working citizens. But there is another element, as on any frontier: the violent, the greedy, the power-hungry. Will the honest homesteaders prevail over those who would destroy their dreams even before they can begin to build?
