Russell Stonechild, a young Cree aboriginal from Northern Saskatchewan, joins a Scots battalion, the Gall Light Armoured, just prior to the outbreak of WW 2. From a fur-trapping and fur-trading family he is well-equipped for the role of warrior and passionately pursues his new career.
When Russell Stonechild, a young Cree, from northern Saskatchewan volunteers to become a recruit for the Gall Light Armoured Scots battalion just prior to the outbreak of WW 2, he enters a new and exciting world. The battalion, sponsored by Lord McAlpin, the Earl of Gall, believes in building each soldier into the best he can be. Russell embraces his new opportunities.
Russell forms a friendship with Fletcher McAlpin, the earl’s son and battalion chaplain. This friendship becomes fundamental to Russell’s ongoing development as a person and soldier. Other friendships give Russell’s life new meaning, but, after being selected to fill the role of military scout for the battalion, new responsibilities overshadow friendships. A seasoned, Ghurka master sergeant places Russell in a position where he must overcome fear and tackle danger regardless of odds.
