In the new frontier, French and British forces battle for a stronghold in the Hudson Valley. Facing savage dangers and rugged terrain, Elizabeth Shields (Carter) and her husband William have come to Fort Bennington to open a trading post in support of the British force, leaving behind the comfort and security of the old world. When their journey crosses paths with the hostile Iroquois, Elizabeth and William are rescued by Natty “Hawkeye” Bumppo (Horsley), a nonconformist frontiersman and his native friend, Chingachgook (Rodney A. Gant). William is double-crossed by his greedy brother who orchestrates his capture by the French. Elizabeth turns to Hawkeye for assistance in rescuing her husband while learning to survive her new frontier life.

*****NOTE: two weeks ago we reported on this title’s pre-order listing in Canada, but NOW this title is ALSO up for pre-order for the USA, too. However, all of the content information provided above STILL comes from the U.K. release of the item, and that may possibly change for North America when the studio makes their official announcement for this side of the ocean. If we get that information before release date, then we’ll return with an update providing those details.
