Hanna arrives in the town of LaForge carrying hope: hope that her father can open a shop, that she can become a dressmaker, and, most daringly of all, that she can attend school with her peers. But this is the Dakota Territory - Oceti Sakowin homeland - in the 1880, and Hanna is half-Chinese. She knows from experience that most white people don't want neighbors who aren't white themselves. The people in LaForge have never seen an Asian person before, and most are unwelcoming and unfriendly - despite the fact that they don't even know he! Still, Hanna is determined to make LaForge a good home for her and Papa. She just has to persuade the townsfolk to see beyond her surface.

Offering a fresh look at a long-established view of history, this compelling story of resolution and persistence is told with humor, insight, and charm.
