Will Henry's frontier stories draw readers irresistibly into a world that -- but for the written page -- has vanished completely. "Lapwai Winter" is set in northeastern Oregon in the time of Chief Joseph of the Nez Perces. A treaty agreement with the Indians has been violated, and their territorial rights have been revoked. Narrated by Heyets, a member of Chief Joseph's family, this gripping drama unfolds with the question of war clearly hanging in the balance. "Winter Shadows" finds a band of Mandan Indians facing the hardest winter in their tribal history. An unscrupulous Assiniboin medicine man has taken advantage of them, and their salvation may rest with an orphaned outcast.
