The Firekeeper is a story of the Mohawk Valley at the time of the early settlements, when the settlers and the natives first learned each other's ways. It is the tale of a forgotten giant of the American frontier, Sir William Johnson. Chieftain of the Mohawks and King George's Colonel of the Six Nations, Billy Johnson founded a kingdom in America and saved the British colonies by convincing the Iroquois to fight against the French.
It is also the story of two powerful women, Catherine Weissenberg, who fled the horrors of war in the Rhineland to love Billy on two continents and become his life partner, and Island Woman, the Iroquois shaman who mastered the arts of shape-shifting, dream prophecy, and psychic healing and recognized Billy as the fulfillment of a prophecy. The Firekeeper is an American epic with classic scope.
