After exhaustive struggles against the fevers and heat of South Louisiana, and against his sworn enemy, his father-in-law, he wrests himself a plantation to begin his fight toward independence. Facing him is Louisianas move toward secession, which he strongly opposes. When the war ultimately comes to the bayou country a year later, he does what he has to do to protect his plantation from its ravages. He collaborates with the enemy and arms his ex-slaves to defend themselves from a marauding lawless element known as jay hawkers.

In the final, tumultuous months of the Civil War, when all is in chaos around him, when he thinks he has safely guided his plantation through the destructions of the war, he has to make a desperate choice when he faces his murderous father-in-law and the vengeful jay hawkers to settle a blood feud.
