Set in the dangerous West Virginia frontier, this story tells of the bravery and heroism of Betty, the beautiful young sister of old Colonel Isaac Zane, one of the most courageous pioneers. Balanced against the grim incidents of the Indian War is the love story of Betty and Alfred Clarke, a handsome young soldier. Their romance, however, is plagued by troubles and endless interruptions before it reaches its stirring climax. The exciting life around Fort Henry, an attack by Indians, Betty's heroic defense of the beleaguered garrison at Wheeling, the burning of the fort, and Betty's final race for life make this a remarkable story filled with the energy, color, and spirit of pioneer days.
