Copied from NIU Edu website: Date: The 1770's and 1786.Catharine Derwent and two granddaughters, Mary, a hunchback, and her sister Jane, live on an island in the Susquehanna River, near Wilkes-barre. An Indian chief in a near-by encampment has an English wife, who, having had an affair, not very clearly indicated, with Grenville Murray, stages a mock suicide and flees to America, can-nily taking with her nearly £100,000. She and the chief have a daughter, Tahmaroo, who is seduced by Granville Murray's son (known in America as Walter Butler). He wishes to marry Jane Derwent, but the chief's wife gives him the alternative of marrying Tahmaroo with a dowry of £70,000, or of being turned over to the mercies of the Indian warriors. He chooses the former. A year later comes the Revolution, and Butler plots with the Indians to destroy the inhabitants of Wyoming Valley. Some of the dwellers in the valley escape, but in the flight Catharine is killed and Butler is badly wounded. He reforms and with his Indian wife goes to England. Mary Derwent becomes the caretaker of the children of Jane Derwent and Edward Clark.
