Gypsy Smith, is a gunfighter and a bounty hunter. When he leads the US army into a Cheyenne camp to capture a suspected Indian renegade, a long train of events begins that finally lead to that 'good day to die'. White Wolf, only a child, is one of the few survivors of the massacre of his tribe that day, and Gypsy brings him to live with the Maxwell family, where he grows up not fully Indian and not really white but a bit too close to Rachel, the Maxwell daughter. And Gypsy now reappears, leading a group of Black settlers from the post-Civil War South to start a new life in a town of their own - Freedom in the Oklahoma Territory, its first black settlement. White Wolf (or Corby as a 'white' name') is now with his people, but all of these parts come back together in conflict, violence, loss, and Pyrric triumph. Written by

I've been haunted by my mother's death for so many years now.
I'm haunted, too. I found my mother hanging from the ceiling when I was just a kid.
It's a cruel message for a mother to leave her daughter.
Yes, it was. She seemed to be saying that life is too difficult, too painful, too empty to keep on struggling; that is was better to die than go through with it. I don't want to be like her. I want to have a life filled with love and joy and family.
