Pat Adams knowledge expands through his fathers interpretation of their ancestors journal written during The War of 1812. The journal was first found by Pats Grandfather Herbert in the foundation of a burnt down barn on the family farm in Pittsfield. Besides Henri Adams account of his trials during The War of 1812 in the journal, he also discloses the journey of his great great grandfather, Eluwillusit, during and after The King Phillips War in 1675. Pats mothers roots originating in France with the Basque culture influenced Pat into having passion for something in life. Annas father, Jacques, teaches Pat the game of Jai Alai, which quickly motivates him to pursue something other than booze, on which his father depends. Unfortunately, Russell does not approve of Pats love for Jai Alai and destroys the Jai Alai sticks Grandpa Jacques gave him. Without Jai Alai, Pat becomes lost and decides that he wants to make it a career. He leaves the family farm in Pittsfield to play professionally in Hartford. In Hartford, Pat is thrown into a corrupt business with gangsters and feds, but luckily befriends Kenny Carter, who shows Pat the ropes.
