Shawnee Scout

Crossing a stream and being briefly exposed to view, this cautious scout checks his back trail before melting into the seclusion and safety of the thickly wooded hillside.  In this time of war and turmoil the once peaceful woodlands hide strangers from the East.  The British and the French have come, building huge log forts in the Shawnee homelands, and their movements must be watched and their intentions evaluated and reported to the chiefs and council leaders.
