This powerful, fact-based story is seen through the eyes of Hidden Doe, a young Native American girl who grows to maturity during the 1840s, when the U.S. government forces her people to leave their homeland in Iowa and make the long and bitter journey to a Kansas reservation. As she comes of age during this painful time, Hidden Doe is counseled in the ways of her people by her courageous grandmother, and soon also grows to know a young man who will win her love.
