"Among the ex-slaves and black freedmen who made the perilous journey West after the Civil War in search of a new life, love and freedom was a man of heroic strength, who was to change forever the face of the Colorado Territory. His name was Birdwell Jacobs, son of a white planter and a slave woman of noble Ashanti lineage.

Then he met and fell in love with the bold and beautiful Jody Robb - in a towering passion that challenged all barriers and taboos - forever sealing his destiny."
