Abstract

With the transfer of East Florida from the Spanish to the Americans, an end came to the acceptance of European descendants living side-by-side with the Seminoles. One who is caught in the middle is Rene Ristau, a local settler who believes in co-habitancy with the Natives and the Minorcans. He tries to protect his friends and neighbors from the new American settlers by working as a mediator, a position a dying Seminole chief entrusted to him. However, he will have to choose where his allegiance truly lies as the Florida frontier breaks out into war.

Other notable local locations visited include the Governor's House (Governor's House Cultural Center and Museum), the Matanzas River, Pellicier Creek, and the St. Johns River.
