Attacked an captured by Spanish soldiers, Loma and several other Hopi Indian children are taken five hundred gruelling miles from their peaceful desert village and sold as slaves. Loma is bought by Big Jim, a gruff trapper, and taken to his cabin in the frozen wilds of the snow covered mountains. For Loma it is a very different and much harsher and crueler way of like, one the frightened twelve year old feels he must battle against to survive.
