Agnes woke up to the real world for just some hours before she again fell asleep.
This time it had gone 14 years since the last time, and Mary lived a happy life with Jaybird and her two children Black Fox and Speckled Bird in an Indian village.
Everyone in the village had big respect for her, because she was a Powwow (medical woman,)
and she had learned a lot about different kinds of diseases that had come with the White men over the years.
But the biggest thing that made her to a respected woman was because she had the gift to look into the future.
So the fear of war that doesn't should come to the village in many month had already came into Marys' mind, and she doesn't felt well about it.
She was afraid of the White mens' cruelty, and she knew that the Indians thought that they had more power then the actually had.
But when she was trying to warn her people for the White mens' strength the young Indians (one of them her own son) didn't listen and just went on with their talk about how weak the
White men were.
When the men were away fishing or hunting, the women went about their tasks almost in silence, hardly noticing what they were doing, each one lost in endless calculation of what this war could cost them. (page 29.)
In this town it lives to different kind of people, on one side of the lake, the Indians, and on the other side, the White men.
They had lived like that in many years on a peaceful and nice way were the both had have respect for each other.
But now when the Indians from the South had come and told them about the war that was going on in their town, a lot of the Indians in Marys' village began to be aggressive against the White men.
So even if Mary a lot of time tried to convince the people that it wasn't a good idea to begin a war against the White men, it was already to late.
