Primitive Passions

Cahill, John M.


When Sean O’Cathail deserted in New York Harbor in 1681, it was not to become a boschloper. He jumped ship to save his own skin. Getting into the fur trading business was just where he landed. As an Irish refugee hiding out in a Dutch colony now controlled by the English, Sean found he had a knack for diplomacy as he negotiated between the colonists and their Iroquois neighbors. This skill also helped with his love life, torn between courting a servant in town, while sleeping with an Indian lass when in the wilderness.
As the French and their Indian allies encroach ever farther into their territory. Sean’s diplomatic skills will be put to the test. Then, he learns more than a few pelts are at stake
