The setting is the province of Quebec, 1632. Father Laforgue, a Jesuit, is sent by his congregation into the canadian wilderness in order to find out whether a jesuit outpost 1500 miles away in the Huron country is still functioning. Escorted by indians, the priest will discover a breath-taking country inhabited by the savage Iroquois tribes. Will he survive the harsh climate and the Indians' deadly arrows?
