After his wife and child are murdered by the Crow tribe, Wind Dancer, a Oglala Lakota, is interested only in the survival of his tribe until he meets Chumani and discovers that she too has lost a spouse and child to the Crow

Blackwell North Amer
For the Oglala Lakotas, "to dance with the wind" means to live in freedom, soaring on its awesome currents as a man above men. As the oldest son of Chief Rising Bear, Wind Dancer knows one day he will shoulder the responsibility for his tribe. Wind Dancer has faith that all is as it should be until his wife and young son are slaughtered by the Crow tribe. Embittered and lonely, Wind Dancer is intent only on his duty to his people. Yet he never imagines that duty will force him to take another woman into his life - and into his heart.
When Wind Dancer first sees Chumani, he is amused by the sight of this woman who dresses and hunts as a man. But after hearing that she, too, has lost her husband and child to the Crow, he has respect for the courageous and beautiful warrior. Seeking revenge for her loved ones, Chumani rides against her enemies, exhilarating in the thrill of the battle that makes her forget the pain she suffers. She vows never again to marry, hoping she can protect herself from further anguish. But when a respected medicine man sees their union in a sacred vision, both Chumani and Wind Dancer know the alliance will make their tribes strong.

& Taylor

When Wind Dancer, who is destined to save his tribe and Chumani, a beautiful and fiery warrior, unite to avenge their loved ones, who were murdered by the Crow tribe, they must overcome many obstacles and surrender to the healing power of love.
