A feisty Irish girl, Kelsey O’Welin, survives the slaughter of white families during the 1862 Dakota War. She is captured and held with 260 women and children, who are threatened and abused by Dakota warriors. Kelsey becomes a squaw to survive, and is protected by a the Dakota chief, Chaska. One day the warrior “Cut Nose” takes an interest in Sha hin Wakahnshica (Red Hair Demon).
Her rescue by a volunteer regiment is slow to arrive. When it comes, Kelsey meets Ransom Purdy, a debonair agent-spy for Grant’s Army. His good friend, Patrick Harant, is a brave but naïve Union volunteer. Fate throws these characters together, but the Civil War keeps them apart. This honest and heartfelt story about the brutality of cultures and war is a keeper, and is the start of an amazing adventure series based in Minnesota history.
