Thomas Jefferson Byrd is used to facing new challenges. Although only 13 years old, he has already left homes in South Carolina and Alabama. Now, he finds himself in the wilderness that is the Mexican territory of Texas.


While his father serves as a volunteer in the Texas army, "Jeff" is left with the burden of helping his mother, brothers, and sister adapt to their new home at Columbia on the Brazos River. Having grown up in Charleston and Mobile, two busy seaports, the boy has a difficult time adapting to inland farm life.
