&quote;What kind of a girl steals the clothes from a dead man's back and runs off to join the army? A desperate one.

That's who.

&quote; At the end of the American Civil War, Charley - a young African-American slave from the deep south - is ostensibly freed.

But then her adopted mother is raped and lynched at the hands of a mob and Charley is left alone.

In a terrifyingly lawless land, where the colour of a person's skin can bring violent death, Charley disguises herself as a man and joins the army.

Soon she's being sent to the prairies to fight a whole new war against the &quote;savage Indians&quote;.

Trapped in a world of injustice and inequality, it's only when Charley is posted to Apache territory that she begins to learn what it is to be truly free.
