Josh Wilson's grade 9 history project leads him stumbling into a parallel world where Native American people have not been displaced by colonists. Instead, the people thrive in a powerful domain and co-exist with small colonies in Massachuetts and New York. Josh has only a few daysto find his way back to his own world, but his quest is fraught with difficulty and danger. He and his guide Rencatha are captured by renegades but must put their personal safety aside to try and save Rencatha's grandfather and her home settlement. Josh's journey among leaders of the colonists and the Mahican people is an action-packed trip through an alternate history that inspires readers to question the past and rethink the future.
