Handsome, blond, Jacob Cob was on a hunting trip that takes him beyond anything he could have imagined. While tracking an animal, he steps into what he believes is the mouth of a cave only to wake up a thousand years in the past.
Taken in by a native band, a young warrior offers him shelter and friendship. Jacob begins to learn the ways of the band, and soon finds himself falling for Tsaskwana, or Bird Song, a lovely native woman. Still he searches for a way home. Every spare moment he has, he wanders the forest, trying to find that cave, to no avail.
Will his white man ways ruin his chance at happiness? Will Bird Song win his heart? Will he accept this new home and these people as his?
