When Thunder Heart, a Lakota warrior, saves the lives of two white women during Red Cloud's War, he places his family and his entire village at risk.
Can Thunder Heart keep these women safe? Will his act of compassion cause the death of his people? Or will they demand the death or abandonment of these women in order to avoid the wrath of the white women?
