Thomas Jefferson Byrd is used to facing new challenges. Although only 13 years old, he has already left homes in South Carolina and Alabama. Now, he finds himself in the wilderness that is the Mexican territory of Texas.


While his father serves as a volunteer in the Texas army, "Jeff" is left with the burden of helping his mother, brothers, and sister adapt to their new home at Columbia on the Brazos River. Having grown up in Charleston and Mobile, two busy seaports, the boy has a difficult time adapting to inland farm life.

br>
Fortunately, a young neighbor, Josh Sagler, befriends Jeff. Their fathers are both in the army, and they feel a strong urge to do something to help in the struggle for Texas independence. Their chance comes when Jeff and Josh join their fathers at Fort Defiance. In the months that follow, Jeff faces his greatest challenges yet, including struggling to decide the difference between his friends and his enemies.
