Overview

In southern Wyoming, an influenza epidemic sweeps in on the tails of a raging blizzard. An already tense situation between whites and the Cheyenne, Shoshoni, and Blackfoot Indian tribes is aggravated when the Indians begin attacking settlers and soldiers alike. Only the nearby Crow remain friendly, at one point even rescuing an army patrol under attack. When influenza and starvation threaten the Crow, Hannah and a young doctor come to their aid. The hungry settlers complain at first, but eventually come to admire and respect the example set by Hannah's Touch of Compassion.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Hannah's adventures (begun in 1997 in Under the Distant Sun) continue as she prepares to give birth to her late husband's child. At the same time, an influenza epidemic sweeps through the fort, the town, and the town of Two Moons, with snow hampering rescue efforts. Relief arrives in the form of Dr. Patrick O'Brien, whose crisis of faith draws him to Fort Bridger to work with his father. As the epidemic rages, the desperately needed medical supplies Patrick brings and his renewed sense of purpose in serving the Lord offer comfort and relief to the stricken. Since a "choose-your-own-adventure" format refers the reader back to Book 5, purchase only for collections with the series. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
