The world of an early 19th century Kentucky farm proves to be too small a place for a boy with a vision. His wanderlust takes him to the Ohio River and into the fierce business world of old St. Louis, where he meets a veteran trapper. Filled with the trapper's stories, he plans to set out to experience the wilderness lore firsthand.
