Run Through Fire is a twelve-year-old Cheyenne brave who has seen a lot in his twelve winters. His father used to visit as much as he could while working as a ranch hand in far away Colorado until the day he was taken away by white men who accused him of being a horse thief. Run Through Fire never saw his father again, although he hoped to one day travel to Colorado to learn his fate.
Most of the braves are killed and the women and children taken prisoner.
