An old friend of Cheney’s is pregnant, and the small town has no doctor. But the mountain people - who are uneducated, superstitious, and resistant to science - hesitate to accept an outsider. With the local medicine woman in the way and a family feud to contend with, Cheney may be biting off more than she can chew.
