Wilderness explorer Jubal Sackett was the son of Barnabas Sackett, the first of that name to come to the New World. Jubal feared no man, nor backed away from any challenge. His fierce determination to blaze new trails took him across the vast, savage North American continent where no white man had been before. Living and fighting among the Indian tribes, Jubal Sackett forged a legend as a powerful medicine man they called "Ni'kwana, master of mysteries." And with Itchakomi, the proud Natchez princess, he walked the path of courage that future Sacketts would follow.
