Montoya has a question burning inside him. Is he adopted? He loves his
family and his home, but he can't get it out of his head that there is
something he doesn't know. He begs his father to take him on a journey
to Bent's Ford so that he can have time alone and ask the questions he
needs the answers to. On the second night of their journey, Julio's father
dies leaving Julio alone in hostile, Cheyenne territory. Julio tries to
go on but can't. Fortunately, he is found by a kind Cheyenne family who
takes him in and names him Soaring Eagle. Julio now has a new life with
a family who loves him. Will he stay or will he continue his search to
find out who he really is?
