Since the age of eleven, whe he saw the white men murder his father, the Red Indian Lolla-Wossiky has been a pathetic drunk. His brother, Ta-Kumsaw, wishes to see whites confined to the eastern lands. But Governor Bill Harrison of the rough frontier town of Carthage has far more brutal plans for the Indians.
When he puts those plans into action, he unwittingly brings young Alvin Miller – a very special white boy with extraordinary magical powers – to Lolla-Wossiky and Ta-Kumsaw. And brings Alvin one more step on his magical odyssey.
