Black Hawk is the chief of the Black Sand reservation of Sioux. They are a tribe deeply spiritual in their beliefs and dedication to their ancestors.
Sarah Lacey is a travel writer who has managed to secure a six month agreement to stay and work with them. She has no idea how much the people and culture will affect her personally.
There is immediate tension between Sarah and Black Hawk. His aloofness infuriates her, whilst she stirs up memories he does not want to remember.
But the Buffalo has spoken and will not be denied.
Sarah decides to ignore Black Hawk, she has much more than his arrogance to worry about; like trying to be accepted into the tribe and being taken seriously and trusted by those around her.
Before Sarah realises it, and to Black Hawks dismay, the guiding spirits lead the Holy Man into sealing Sarah's fate with the tribe.
Sarah's decisions have a profound effect on her family who are soon drawn into a web that could spell disaster for the future of the reservation.
This story will take you through a visual waterfall of seasons through garrison towns, prairie and tipis. You will discover how birch bark canoes were made, the process of naming, of herbal medicine and spirituality. Feel the freedom of riding bareback in wild flowers, the quiet cold of winter and the warm community and laughter of a people joined together in one mind. But beware; there are those that do not relish the life they have been born into.
