When Doctor Aaron Bell made the journey from Boston to Pierre, South Dakota, to be at the deathbed of his brother, Abe, he could not have expected to come into possession of a stirring chronicle: his brother’s hand-written account of their early life west of the Missouri in the last three decades of the 19th century and the impact on them both of a remarkable man, Reverend Eli Bell. Aaron, a full-blooded Sioux, and Abe, orphaned early in life, were drawn together in an extraordinary family that brought faith and courage to two cultures. The mysterious disappearance of Eli had unforeseen implications for both of the brothers. Set in a majestic landscape, Abe’s Story recounts through new eyes the turbulent years that saw the extinguishing of the culture of the Plains Indians and the theft and desecration of their land.
