A mountain violet / Nora Beason.

Beason, Nora, (author.).


A beautiful little girl was left on the steps of the "Amazing Grace" Orphanage in 1882. Daisy and Tommy Egan would love this child as their own and raise her in a Christian home. When Violet was six years old, she stood out from the other children at school with her long black hair; olive skin; and purple eyes. Until one day during a Colorado blizzard; she was kidnapped by her Native American family. Learning to live on a reservation taught Violet to appreciate the dedication and survival traditions that was necessary in a small Indian village; but no one could teach her how to survive a broken heart. She followed her wise Indian grandfather's advice and left Colorado in search of happiness when she was eighteen years old. Would a tall handsome mountain man persuade her to live in the deep valley below the Rockies; will she follow her adopted parent's wishes and further her education; or will Violet give her love to an Indian Scout? Her Christian upbringing will help her make the right decisions. --back cover
