INTO THE WILDERNESS is the story of Elizabeth Middleton, an independent, strong-willed English woman who travels to America in 1792 to set up a school in 'Paradise', a primitive settlement on the edges of a wilderness the white settlers share grudgingly with the Mohawk Wolf clan. There she finds her father has plans to marry her off to a wealthy settler and solve his financial problems into the bargain. But Elizabeth is just as determined to realise her dream in the hostile new land and finds an unlikely supporter in Nathaniel Bonner, a rugged Scottish trapper who is also an honorary member of the Mohawk Wolf clan.
Interweaving the fate of the Mohawk nation with these two outsiders torn between different worlds, INTO THE WILDERNESS is an epic love story. "My favorite kind of book is the sort that you live in, rather than read...this is one of those rare stories that lets you breathe the air of another time and leave your footprints on the snow of a wild, strange place. " DIANA GABALDON
