While being held prisoner by the Shawnees, he befriends Tobahana, a Seneca warrior, who helps him escape, only to begin a journey that takes them on an adventure which eventually leads them to the Painted Mountain (located in Southeast Virginia). Josh and Tobahana have one thing in common; both were taken prisoner by the hated Scarface, scourge of the Shawnee Nation. Josh, after rescuing Tobahana’s sister Meriah from the French, then from the Shawnees, falls in love with Meriah.
