Paw was happy with the lambing that spring. It looked like they would
be out of debt by the end of the summer. But then it happened.
The heavy rains caused the dam to break. Georgia, Paw Paw, and Gramma
got out in time but they lost everything. The high school was
set up as a shelter but the Indians were stuck in a classroom with no room
to lie down while the White townsfolk got cots and blankets in the gym.
The Indians were charged for food while the others were given free food.
In spite of the discrimination and their terrible loss, the family is determined
to rebuild their lives. And when they find a young colt that had
survived the flood, they take it as a sign that they will succeed.
