The snow still lay on the ground when Ann Williams, Noah Swift Hawk, and their family attempt to escape the consequences of Noah and Ann's interracial marriage. In the year of 1840, folks don't cotton to them disregarding the law put into place to keep the white race pure. If caught, Judge Daniel Hall has a bullet waiting for Noah and Ann, or at the very least, a whip. They try to find a way out of Little Rock to run for their lives. The family attempts a very risky avenue of escape. Their exodus does not go well. They encounter dangerous terrain, as well as desperate and vicious animals and people. Some attack mercilessly. Others desperately need their help. The family is unable to travel far from Little Rock. For months, they must avoid those looking for them as they hide in the forest beside Fletcher Creek in the new slave state of Arkansas. They receive help from unlikely people who are barely surviving themselves. Who escapes? Who does death claim?
