In the middle of a snow storm Jess and her Aunt delivered a stillborn that took the life of Uncle David's wife. Devastated by her Father's death in Kentucky Jess vowed to fulfill his dream of life in Kentucky. Dressed in her twin brother's clothes she tried to follow David to the Bluegrass. Weather, Digger and Hutch two Bluegrass long hunters she met, and Indians made her trip very difficult. She reached the Bluegrass on her own and with her neighbor's help she builds her cabin. Then she shared her secret with them. Digger and Hutch returned to the Bluegrass. Hutch found Jess is Jessica and their friction continued. Bandit and Outlaw, Jess' coons added pranks to her life. David and his party arrived, Jess takes in Lightfoot's runaway sister Fawn, then James and Katherine joined the village near Fort McClelland. Jess' life is filled with work, love, Indian raids, death, new life, accidents, nature's elements, and their camaraderie. Hutch and Jess were to be married when he returned from selling their furs in New Orleans. Illinois Indians captured Hutch an hour before the wedding. Jess with the help of Digger and Bill followed on the rivers to retrieve him.
