Chapter 20 Summary

The men quit the fort carefully. They wish to leave no trace. They know the Oneida was alone, but his group may be on their trail soon. The canoe is placed in the water and the men start the search. Paddling across the lake, they see a wisp of smoke from a low campfire. Before they can approach, two canoes give chase. Shots are exchanged, though no one is badly wounded. Our group manages to pull ahead, and lands on a small island. They make a false trail to throw off the Huron. There is another water journey; then the canoe is hidden in bushes. The group prepares to walk from here.

Chapter 20 Analysis

This journey is not expected to be easy. Likely, Magua has left men behind in order to slow the rescue. They use the same techniques as the Indians to leave no trail.
