Fire in the Steppe ( Polish : Pan Wołodyjowski ; also translated into English as Sir Michael and Colonel Wolodyjowski ; literally, Sir Wołodyjowski ) is a historical novel by the Polish author Henryk Sienkiewicz , published in 1888. It is the third volume in a series known to Poles as " The Trilogy ", being preceded by With Fire and Sword ( Ogniem i mieczem , 1884) and The Deluge ( Potop , 1886). The novel's protagonist is Michał Wołodyjowski .

Michael Volodyovski has retired to a monastery after the death of his wife, Anna Borzobogati. At Chenstohova . Kharlamp, an acquaintance, goes to see Andrei Kmita to get his help in persuading him to leave it. He and Zagloba make a journey to consult Yan and it is finally Zagloba who offers to speak to Volodyovski.

Making his way to Warsaw , Zagloba meets his old friend, Hassling-Ketling , a Scot, who now resides in Warsaw after being adopted by a noble in Svyenta in Courland , who offers him a bed. Taking place is the Diet to elect a new King of which Prince Boguslav is a candidate and Zagloba is determined to raise support against the traitor.

Zagloba carries a letter from the primate to the monastery of Mons Regius. Michael is now known as Brother Yerzy and is persuaded to leave for the nation’s sake and stays at Ketling’s house. They are visited by Sobieski , the hetman , and a feast takes place and Michael receives a present of a cream-coloured steed.

Michael’s sister, Mrs Makovetski, visits Warsaw and is invited to stay with Krystina Drohoyovski and Barbara Yezorkovski, of whom her husband is their guardian. Michael is immediately attracted by Krysia but Zagloba intends that Basia, who delights him, should be the little knight’s. He teaches her fencing and she is disconcerted and embarrassed by his adeptness with the sword for whom she develops a strong admiration. Adam Novoveski, a young cavalier, arrives on the scene and pays court to Basia but she has nothing of it and rejects his eventual marriage proposal.

Michael meets with Sobieski and is sent with letters to Rushchyts in Russia and the Wilderness beyond. He says farewell to Krysia and an unspoken pact is made between them. Michal leaves and Ketling of Elgin returns to his house from Courland and Krysia is immediately enchanted by his looks and manners. Zagloba implements his stratagem to set Ketling at Krysia in order to save ‘his little haiduk’ Basia for Michael. Owing to her pact, Krysia resolves to enter a convent and Ketling vows to return to Scotland .

The Diet continues and on their way back from Warsaw one evening, Zagloba and Basia encounter Volodyovski and his brother-in-law Makovetski. Over time Michael realizes that Krysia no longer loves him and agrees to give her up. However, on learning from Basia that it is Ketling for whom she feels affection, he falls into a rage and rushes off to kill him. Later, Ketling and Michael return having resolved their differences as old friends and Michael, encountering Basia once more, and she reveals her love for the worthy cavalier.

Introduced about 1630, the flintlock rapidly replaced earlier firearm-ignition technologies, such as the matchlock and wheellock mechanisms. It continued to be in common use for over two centuries, replaced by percussion cap in the mid 19th century and, later, cartridge-based systems. The Model 1840 U.S. musket was the last flintlock firearm produced for the U.S. military although there is evidence obsolete flintlocks were seeing action in the earliest days of the American Civil War. In fact, during the first year of the war, the Army of Tennessee (Confederacy) had over 2,000 flintlock muskets in service. While technologically obsolete, flintlock firearms have enjoyed a renaissance among black powder shooting enthusiasts and many fine flintlock rifles and pistols are being made today.

Note that any firing Flintlock Pistols in a live-action production are likely to be modern replicas since period flintlocks are unsafe to shoot and much more expensive.
