2D7 Dances with Wolves
The story starts in 1863, during the Civil War. Lieutenant John Dunbar was wounded in the calf. His leg was going to be sawed off. But he preferred to commit suicide instead. Thanks to this failed suicide, he became a hero. He was even decorated.
He was sent to the Frontier, because he wanted to see buffalos. When he arrived in Fort Hays, the major who posted him at Fort Sedgewick committed suicide. Dunbar was accompanied by a muleteer, Timmons.
When they arrived, Fort Sedgewick was deserted. Dunbar decided to stay and Timmons was killed and scalped on the way back. No one knew Dunbar was there. He was alone. His only companions were his horse (Sisco) and a wolf (Two Socks).
One day, an Indian tried to steal his horse, but Sisco escaped.
