As the novel opens, Nakaidoklinni is a novice raider on traditional Apache forays into Mexico. After the establishment of Fort Apache, he becomes a scout for the U.S. Army, fighting in skirmishes against Apache bands in the Tonto Basin of central Arizona. The course of his life changes, however, when he encounters a white wolf in the dark of night. Drawing special powers from the wolf, he becomes a healer and spiritual leader for his troubled people.
Beseeching the gods for guidance, Nakaidoklinni begins a series of transformational dances to unify his people. The success of the dances threatens the interests of white settlers and soldiers, who ultimately confront Nakaidoklinni's people in the bloody battle at Cibique Creek in August 1881.
