This is the autobiography of John Tanner (the Falcon), who is captured by the Shawnee tribe in 1789 at the age of nine, then sold to an Ojibwa family with whom he spends the first half of his adult life. His effort to return to white society is unsuccessful, and he decides his home is with the Ojibwa. But that changes when he is accused of murder and forced to flee.
