About the Book
In southern Wyoming, an influenza epidemic sweeps in on the tails of a raging blizzard. An already tense situation between whites and the Cheyenne, Shoshoni, and Blackfoot Indian tribes is aggravated when the Indians begin attacking settlers and soldiers alike. Only the nearby Crow remain friendly, at one point even rescuing an army patrol under attack. When influenza and starvation threaten the Crow, Hannah and a young doctor come to their aid. The hungry settlers complain at first, but eventually come to admire and respect the example set by Hannah's Touch of Compassion.
