The long days on the trail were filled with excitement for adventurous Carrie Talbot. She was going to start a new life at the indian mission with her parents.
Then a sudden encounter with an indian raiding party left Carrie with more excitement than she wanted. As she rode off helplessly with her captors, frantic thoughts raced through her mind.
Why was one of the indians so interested in the family bible she had managed to save? How could she escape? Even if she did, how could sheever find her way to the mission?
The raiding party took Carrie deep into the wilderness to a Cheyenne camp on the banks of a distant river. There Carrie met the indian called Keeper and began a life far different from any she had ever imagined.
