When America was a vast wilderness of forests and waterways, Indians and trappers, a man and a woman met and fell in love. Their names were Abby Brewster and Edward Fournet.
Managing to survive Indian raids and fighting armies of English, French and American colonists, the beautiful New England girl and the handsome French adventurer traveled the great rivers and streams establishing commerce with the soldiers.
And as the nation expanded and trade increased, they married and their family grew. From raft builders on the Hudson to paddlewheelers along the great Mississippi, from lake trade on the Erie to fur posts deep within the Oregon Territory, they knew hardship and passion and somehow survived--knowing that their children, grandchildren and generations to come, would inherit the fortune and continue the great tradition of their Whitewater Dynasty.
This is the first in a series of romantic-adventure-historical novels that traces the growth of America by its magnificent and powerful waterways--and the proud, passionate people who built their lives around them.
