Story takes place in 1890. Silas and his wife live in a nice house
near Funks Grove. They are raising their grandson Daniel. His
father, Pierce, had moved to South Dakota when Daniel was a baby and his
mother died. Daniel misses his father and wants to be with him.
He decides to go to his father even though the Sioux are considering an
uprising. When Daniel arrives at his father's home in South Dakota
during the dangerous time, he begins to piece together the reasons his
father hasn't moved back to Illinois.
