In 1740, our frontier was not Texas, or Oklahoma, or Kansas. It was the rolling hills east of the great chain of Appalachian mountains. Natives who owned the land were not Comanche or Apache. In South Carolina, the Natives were mainly Cherokee and Catawba. This decade of 1740 to 1750 saw the beginning of the taking of that Indian land by white settlers, just as they had done on the coast. Here we again have a variety of people set down in an historical situation, experiencing frontier life, clashes with Indian culture, hardships, loneliness, tragedy and love. We see the continuing of the unrest that led to the French and Indian war and our war with the Cherokee. Here are men and women, isolated, with few neighbors, seeking companionship and love where there is little of either to be found.
