Riassunto: This book takes actual historical facts and builds real life around the events. The chief protagonist is Marie des Neiges de St. Denis, youngest daughter of Louis Juchereau de St. Denis, native of Quebec who worked with native inhabitants from Mobile to Natchitoches, first permanent settlement in the Louisiana Province. He established a trade route deep into Texas and won the respect of the Spanish authorities, although they feared his friendship with Indian tribes. My story begins with the burial of that great statesman, St. Denis. His youngest daughter is often viewed as a woman too outspoken for her time, a women’s libber of the 1700’s. But to know her whole story is to love and respect her. She faced hardships beyond those of the average pioneer woman. Her romance with the Spanish cavalry officer from nearby Los Adayes, capital of Spanish New Spain at that time, would seem doomed. As Louisiana passed from French to Spanish, then back to French, and finally turned into an American province in 1803, the DeSoto family and their offspring carved out a life of faith and hard work, in spite of roadblocks constantly arising in their lives.
