            A great treasure of the French people was brought to New Orleans from France in 1792 by the La Porte family.  This treasure ultimately ends up in the hands of Waco Baptiste, whose mother was a Wichita Indian and whose father was a French trader.  What Waco does with the treasure will certainly entertain and educate the reader.  The book is divided into two parts.  The first covers the period from 1750 to 1876.  The second part jumps forward to 1995 through 2005, and follows the footsteps of Sara Wind Cloud, a young woman of the Wichita tribe, who makes a great discovery during her studies as a history major at Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma.  Her discovery ultimately leads her to the treasure of the Wichita which Waco Baptiste swore in an oath of secrecy to his wife, Julian La Porte, to protect at all costs.  Waco Baptiste certainly accomplished his mission, and Sara Wind Cloud brings closure to the mystery in a manner which the reader should find both fair and honorable to all parties.
