Matt Hutchins, the lone survivor of a wagon train massacre.... Found and raised by the Sioux, Matt not only learns the ways of the Sioux, but his survival skills are keenly honed, with his tracking abilities used by both the Army and later by the sheriff of a town named Buffalo Flats. Matt lives alone on the open plains with his trusted friend and horse, Ole Friend, a gift given to him by the Chief Buffalo Robes, the one who taught him how to survive.
Every aspect of this story if you can call it that has been done much better in the past.
Returning from Washington after fighting the president for a fair peace treaty, Matt is surprised by the changes that have taken place in Buffalo Flats. But change isn't always good. Will Matt be able to survive the marching pace of time and expansion?
Good story and easy to get lost in the narration with great characters and plot. Enjoyed it!
