From the Back Cover:

The hardscrabble western plains of Oklahoma were an unkind place. Barren lands, oppressive heat, unrelenting winds awaited those who would settle there. It was here the Comanche Indians were "placed" by the U.S. government.

Into this reservation setting in 1902 stepped a unique couple, Abraham and Magdalena Becker. German-Russian Mennonites with little more than their tenacious, loving spirit to nourish them, the Beckers would become special friends to the Comanche. Stewards of Post Oak Mission, established by the Mennonite Brethren, they shaped a meaningful life of service among these former hunters and warriors. Magdalena Becker emerged as the key figure in the development of this mission into, arguably, the most successful one in western Oklahoma.
