Swift Eagle is a Lakota warrior. He means no harm to the white family. Guided by a vision, he has been sent to take care of her, and help her down the mountain.
Jessica does not know what to make of the Indian when he appears at her camp. He introduces himself as Swift Eagle and proclaims the Great Spirit sent him a vision to help her off the mountain. It is hard to believe an Indian would assist a white family. He explains how he stayed out of view, when he saw her man fall ill, not wishing to be shot. Now alone, going down the mountain will be dangerous. He will show her the best way. Swift Eagle believes this is his destiny.

This rich tale offers vivid imagery of the beautiful scenery and landscape, and brings in the tribal customs of each person, as Jessica and Swift Eagle search their heart.
