Solomon is a Stockbridge Indian in an English mission town in the mid-18th century. He spends his youth learning trades, immersing himself in the life of the woods, providing for his fellow villagers, and becoming adept at bridging white and Indian ways. He courts the beautiful Catherine, only to have her vanish from his life just as their love begins to blossom. Then, the outbreak of hostilities between the English and French completely upturns Solomon's town and his world, and he is suddenly thrust into the role of scout for Hobbs' Company of Rangers. With Sacred Hor follows Solomon and his companions as they trek through the wilderness of North America, fighting the French and their Indian allies. They stand together against death, mayhem, and a crazed and murderous British officer. Johnson's engaging tale resonates with authenticity; the realities of life in colonial America come alive, and the reader is drawn into a universe of smoke and gunfire, courage and cowardice, romance and redemption.
