During the winter, Wade goes hunting with the warriors More
Wade, Chumani and Aruna are on their way north to the Cheyenne village when the spirits of his long dead parents appear to tell him that he must rescue a girl of seventeen who has been taken by four men who intend to kill her. They also tell him it is not her time to be called, which makes him wonder what she will do in the future. They return to the town to leave Rebecca Grimes with Etta and Ellen. Weeks later, they arrive at the village and after a hunt with Aruna, they decide to stay the winter. In the mean time, a small band of marauders enter the town with the intention of taking what they want and killing anyone who gives them any trouble. Without the addition of Rebecca to their number, the marauders might very well succeed.
