If a special infant were unrelentingly denied the distractions of women and even other children with their softening ways, and if the child, the youth, and finally the man were exhaustively trained, taught, and unceasingly immersed in warrior ways of deadliest combat, honor, and devotion to the Iroquois Nations, might not a fighter with abilities never before imagined be produced?
The Delaware warrior Friend Seeker and the seer Late Star undertake the life- consuming effort. The orphaned and unnamed son of a giant Susquehanock and a Seneca woman of magnificent proportions and strength is the chosen infant. Even the first name-giving describes his direction in life. He is called Small Warrior.
This is the story of the development, training and service of the mightiest and most renowned of all Iroquois fighters. Steeped in the meanings of honor and service, skilled beyond measurement, scarred survivor of countless battles and indefatigable defender of his people—so deadly in battle that he was known, admired, and feared by only one name.
To all, friend or foe, he is The Warrior.
