The article discusses an affair between Charles A. Eastman, a Santee Dakota or Sioux Indian educated as a physician, and Henrietta Martindale, the daughter of his classmate Stephen Martindale.

Other topics include the death of Charles and Elaine's daughter Irene Taluta Eastman in the influenza pandemic of 1918, and the life of Charles and Henrietta's illegitimate daughter Bonno Hyessa, and Hernrietta's marriage to Paul Wilson, described as a social outcast. The article explores letters to and from Henrietta's sister Katharine Martindale.
