A chief has a half-breed daughter, Late Setting Sun, with red hair. It would be big medicine to have both a boy and girl with the red hair. Rusty daydreams of adventures with himself as the hero, thanks to all his reading.

His new sister is one inch taller, one year older and until Rusty arrived, has been the most special person in the tribe. An exhausted Rusty first meets his sister when she is given the routine chore of getting him properly dressed as a Cheyenne to meet the chiefs and elders. His shyness and both of their stubbornness clash.

While it may offend many Japanese, it deals with issues that need to be remembered.
