'Prisoners of Chance' is the story of Geoffrey Benteen, a Borderman, and what he goes through for hislady love. As an adventurer in a new land, he encounters mysterious natives and battles his own countrymen. However, as a man, he must choose between pursuing the woman he loves and saving her husband's life! Excerpt: "I am Geoffrey Benteen, Gentleman Adventurer, with much experience upon the border, where I have passed my life. My father was that Robert Benteen, merchant in furs, the first of the English race to make permanent settlement in New Orleans. Here he established a highly profitable trade with the Indians, his bateaux voyaging as far northward as the falls of the Ohio, while his influence among the tribesmen extended to the eastern mountains. My mother was of Spanish blood, a native of Saint Augustine, so I grew up fairly proficient in three languages, and to them I later added an odd medley of tribal tongues which often stood me in excellent stead amid the vicissitudes of the frontier."
