In the winter of 1917, nineteen-year-old Martha Lessen saddles her horses and heads for a remote country in eastern Oregon looking for work 'gentling" wild horses.Many of the regular hands are off fighting the war, and though the ranchers are skeptical of Martha's quiet, unconventional methods, it is clear that she has a serious knowledge of horses.
Over the long, hard winter, the townsfolk witness Martha talking in low, sweet tones to horses believed beyond repair - and getting miraculous, almost immediate results. Ultimately, her gifts will earn her the respect of the men, friendship of the women, and an indispensable place in the community.
