In mid-19th C many European families migrated to the USA. There they had to fight not only against the forces of nature but also against a stronger and more persevering enemy: the redskins. This is the story of an Irish young man who was brought up to fear and despise the Native Americans. He has to walk a a painful way till he understands and appreciates the lords of the prairie. With Michael, the reader will not only become a member of the Sioux world, but he will also live a passionate friendship and love story.
