As the hot sun beats down on her head and she takes one plodding step after another, all Mary Eliza McElroy can see is the monotonous brown hills of the Wyoming plains and the dusty, serpentine ruts of the Oregon Trail. She wonders if this journey to a new life will ever end.
Then a flash catches her eye and she spies a small group of riders galloping across the prairie toward the wagon train. The Lakota warriors have come to harass the whites and demand a toll from them for traveling across their land, but they ride away with something far more precious than money or horses: A captive.
Mary Eliza must learn to survive in the harsh new world of the Lakota if she has any hope of returning to her white family. As her fear subsides and she learns the ways of the Lakota, she comes to respect and even admire her captors, but she is unprepared for the strange new feelings that the warrior Mysterious Medicine awakens in her, or for the terrible choice she must eventually make.
