Chief Joseph, the leader of the Nez Perce, had always been a man of peace. Yet now his people are being forced from their lands. Following a deadly skirmish with the U.S. Army, a monumental decision awaits the great chief.
To keep his people intact, should they fight or submit?
Meanwhile, new settlers Lucas Phelps and his son Kirby are trying to tame the land and build a farm. Lucas is weary of the Nez Perce band that is temporarily settled nearby, while Kirby is intrigued by these new neighbors. He accidentally meets Little Bird, a beautiful young Nez Perce maiden, and finds he can't keep her out of his mind.
Within days these two worlds collide to form a fascinating story of danger, bravery, misunderstanding, and forbidden love. (Publisher website)
