Summary
The unsolved murder of a farm family haunts the small, white, off-reservation town of Pluto, North Dakota. The vengeance exacted for this crime and the subsequent distortions of truth transform the lives of Ojibwe living on the nearby reservation and shape the passions of both communities for the next generation
Summary
In 1911, a terrible, blood-chilling crime was committed at the edge of the Ojibwe Reservation, east of the predominantly white town of Pluto, North Dakota. As time passes and memories fade, the past lies buried--until destiny comes calling
