Flying Cloud was not happy in this place. The year is 1879 and he
has been sent away from his tribe to a school for Indians. His father
wished him to go to learn the language of the white men so that they would
not be fooled again. They have lost their land and their way of life.
And now it is up to the children to learn what they can to protect the
rest of them.
Jenny Muldoon has lost her
father in a tragic accident. While fighting a fire, he had been caught
in the flames and burned. When he died, Jenny blamed herself and
has been keeping her distance from everyone ever since. Her mother
has remarried and the family is moving to Fort Sayers. The fort used
to be used as a boarding school for Indians.
How can the lives of these
two young people possibly have anything to do with each other? How
will they influence each other?
