Sticks and stones...
Candice Lincoln is waiting for her big break. Journalism, at least when it comes to war corresponding, is still a man's game. When she's handed a fluff story to cover a group of Native American dancers in the Midwest, the last thing she wants to do is drop everything and abandon her desk in the city.
Hawk Manone is proud of himself and the people to which he was born. Sure, they have their problems from years of neglect, discrimination and overt hostility, but if they work together, he knows that his people can become proud again. That's why he volunteers his time as part of a dance team that helps to educate the white population as much as his own. He never thought his desire to teach the general population about his nation would lead to falling in love with a woman as pure, and as white, as the driven snow. But then...even the snow isn't white once it gets dirty. And when it comes to journalism, apparently, "dirty" is the name of the game.
