The book ends with the massacre of Fort William Henry. Robert Lennox, a young American fighter, and his two friends--Tayoga, and Onondaga Indian, and David Willett, a hunter--fall in with Achille Gary, a crafty Frenchman, whom they recognize as a spy. By ingenious methods they get him to disclose the whereabouts of an important message and so gain the upper hand, but new difficulties in the way of carrying out their plans for discovering the intentions of the enemy soon arise.
