Ketta Noonan, her mother's child by rape, has been kidnapped by the twelve-year-old's father. Her mother's husband is glad she's gone--he has always detested the child as evidence of her mother's violation and kept her hidden away. But sixteen-year-old Yester Noonan is fond of his half-sister, even if she is part Chinese, so when his mother begs him to rescue her he rides out, accompanied by his Metis friend. As for Ketta? She's not too shabby either when it comes to being tough.
