The Royalton Raid of October 1780 was the last Indian raid to occur in New England. With no warning, a war party of 265 Canadian Mohawks and Abenakis under British command materialized from the forest at dawn, took 32 captives, and burned the town of Royalton, Vermont. The book revolves around the story of Zadock Steele, a Royalton captive who wrote about his harrowing experience as a prisoner of the Mohawks and the British. His detailed narrative is one of the best historical sources about the prisoner of war experience in British Canada.
