Race (Radford Arthur Cearnach Ennis II) learns to thrive in the raw, timber covered, unpopulated area where large logging operations are a law unto themselves. To defend his land, Race forms an alliance with a small, local Indian tribe and a group of River Rats from St. Louis. The deaths of his father and brother require him to return to Ireland to take on the family responsibilities.Time and TidesRace finds the clan starving and persecuted due to the potato famine and their treatment by the British.

In these years prior to the Civil War, Native Americans, Black persons, and immigrants were all trying to find their way in a growing changing country.
