Martha Hazlett, young, slight, and pretty, escapes from a position of near slavery in England and boards a ship for the colonies in America, where wives are needed. Upon arrival, she is selected for marriage by a gentleman old enough to be her father and wisked off to his plantation on the edge of the wilderness. She makes the best of a bad situation until the plantation is raided by Indians and she becomes a captive. Her only hope for rescue is from the men at the Jamestown settlement, but it is Jacob Fite, the Woodsman, who is best qualified.
